Both F2 And GP3 Are Getting Bigger Calendars Next Season

F1’s biggest feeder series will be getting even more races in 2018

Both the FIA Formula 2 Championship and the GP3 Series have announced extended race calendars next year.

2018 will also see F2 (formerly GP2) run a brand-new chassis for the first time in seven years. The new car matches current F1 regs with wider tyres, cooler aero and… the Halo, unfortunately.
