FIA Formula 2 Championship logo.jpg

The FIA Formula 2 Championship, otherwise known as Formula Two or simply F2, is an FIA accredited racing series, focused at developing young drivers.[1] Originally founded as the GP2 Series in 2005 to prepare young drivers for Formula One, Formula Two sees twenty or more drivers battle for victory in identical cars constructed by Dallara.[2]

Links to Formula E

F2 and Formula E are fairly well linked despite the former's deep-rooted connections to Formula One and traditional motorsport series. Indeed, the majority of drivers to have raced in FE have competed in F2/GP2 Series in their development years, although only two F2/GP2 Champions have driven in FE.[3] Furthermore, three time FE Champions e.Dams are a sister team of multiple GP2/F2 Champions DAMS, while the two series also share a mutual chassis manufacturer in the form of Dallara.[4]

All drivers whom have competed in both Formula E and Formula Two are listed below:
