GP2 returns this weekend to Monza supporting the Formula 1 Italian Grand Prix. Hulkenberg is close to wrapping up the title, but Petrov still has a chance to turn the tables.

Race 1 can be seen tape delayed on Eurosport 2 at 5 pm and race 2 can seen on Eurosport live on Sunday morning at 9:30 am.

Petrov comfortably on pole: http://www.autosport.com/news/report.php/id/78499

I suppose he will be hoping that Hulkenberg gets caught up in a crash.

great gp2 race, from very wet to dry almost

great racing and a great driver by guido van der garde

it makes me wonder why not just call gp2 something else, like f1 (ditch fom, bernie, teams etc) and just have cracking racing.

Maybe because all the cars are the same? Very Happy I do agree that the racing is sensational though.

Yes it was a good race, Van Der Garde. He clearly had the better car in those conditions and made the right pitstop. Perhaps Van Der Garde conserved his tyres more as the track started to dry because he was never a threat intitially so he could have been waiting to pounce as the wet tyres grooves started to wear. But I was quite puzzled as to why the race was run for 3 laps behind the SC car. All that did is make the tyres and brakes cold and that caused a number of accidents at the first corner. Perez's accident was scary, he simply aquaplaned and could have collected other cars.

Cecotto Jr crash was nasty at the second Lesmo, it seemed as the track got drier more started to go off.

The FIA stewards again confuse me, what a stupid rule to have regarding cutting chicanes. I'd like to put a steward in a GP2 car at Monza in the wet and lets see how many times he runs off the track. Penalties for human errors is a shambles.

Well Petrov ran off the track 3 times and he didn't get a penalty. And he wasn't battling with other cars like Parente, although the Kobayashi incident at the second chicane was totally crazy. How can the 2009 GP2 Asia Champ be so useless in Europe?
Some great racing going on in amongst all that and daft stewards trying to ruin the race for drivers, teams and fans.
Thought the Hulk was going to drop like a stone at the start of the race, but he kept things going to score a couple points.
Race 2 in 20 mins cheers

Not the most exciting race, but congratulations to Nico Hulkenberg 2009 GP2 Champion.

Yes indeed and what a year he has had. Hulkenberg has to be in F1 next year and hopefully with a decent car. Very Happy

Kobayashi is just the new Nakijima because sometimes he is fast, like in GP2 Asia but others he is slow and erratic like in GP2 Europe. I hope Toyota does not fund Kobayashi for an F1 seat next year like they did with Nakijima...
