Formula 2's class of 2018 is ready to rumble

The FIA Formula 2 Championship kicks off this weekend in Bahrain with a fierce looking group of young chargers all gunning for glory.

Reigning champion Charles Leclerc has stepped up to F1 with Sauber, and the Monegasque will no doubt provide some good inspiration to the talented group of racers.

Last year's runner-up Artem Markelov returns for another shot at the title along with fellow race-winners Nyck de Vries, Nicholas Latifi, Luca Ghiotto, Sergio Sette Camara and Antonio Fuoco.

New kids on the F2 block include 2017 GP3 Series winner George Russell, along with fellow graduates Jack Aitken, Nirei Fukuzumi and Arjun Maini, and others...

Keep your eye on one man however, Carlin's Lando Norris. Our money is on the 18-year-old McLaren junior who also happens to be the youngest driver on the grid this year.
