Prema Racing entered the season as the defending Teams' Champions.

The 2021 FIA Formula 2 Championship is a motor racing championship for Formula 2 cars that is sanctioned by the Fédération Internationale de l'Automobile (FIA). The championship is the fifty-fifth season of Formula 2 racing and the fifth season run under the FIA Formula 2 Championship moniker. It is an open-wheel racing category that serves as the second tier of formula racing in the FIA Global Pathway. The category is scheduled to be run in support of selected rounds of the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship. As the championship is a spec series, all teams and drivers competing in the championship will run the same car, the Dallara F2 2018.[1][2] The championship is due to be contested over twenty-four races at eight circuits. It began in March 2021 with a round in support of the Bahrain Grand Prix, and end in December where it will support the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

A new chassis package was due to be introduced for the 2021 season, but in a bid to cut costs in light of the COVID-19 pandemic, the lifespan of the Dallara F2 2018 chassis package was extended until 2023.[2][3]

Prema Racing are the reigning teams' champions, having secured their second Formula 2 title at the final round of the 2020 season.

Entries

The following teams and drivers are under contract to compete in the 2021 championship. As the championship is a spec series, all competitors race with an identical Dallara F2 2018 chassis with a V6 turbo engine developed by Mecachrome. Teams compete with tyres supplied by Pirelli. The same eleven teams who competed during the 2020 season were retained for the next three-year cycle.[4]

Calendar

A provisional calendar was published in November 2020. An updated version due to the postponement of the 2021 Australian Grand Prix, which required several Grands Prix to change dates, was revealed in January 2021.

Calendar changes

As a consequence of cost-cutting measures, the Formula 2 and Formula 3 championships will adopt a new format. The two championships will alternate between Grands Prix meetings and will no longer appear together on the support race bill. Although this will reduce the number of rounds, both championships will run three races at a Grand Prix instead of two, keeping the overall number of races the same as in previous years. The format change was designed to cut costs for teams competing in both championships by allowing them to rotate staff between each championship.[35][36][37]

As the 2020 championship was disrupted by the COVID-19 pandemic, the 2021 calendar will feature substantial revisions:

The Circuit Zandvoort had been included on the 2020 calendar, but was removed from the schedule in response to the COVID-19 pandemic. It was initially expected that the round would feature on the 2021 calendar, but it was not included on the provisional calendar. The circuit was included on the Formula 3 calendar instead.

Regulation changes

Sporting changes

The weekend format is scheduled to be changed with two sprint races held on Saturday and the feature race with mandatory pit stop on Sunday. Qualifying will determine grid of the feature race and the first sprint race; the grid for the first sprint race will be set by reversing the top ten qualifying positions.[38] The grid of the second race will be formed by results of the first sprint race, with top ten finishers reversed. The addition of a third race to the weekend schedule will see teams provided with an extra set of tyres.

Season report

Round 1: Bahrain

Guanyu Zhou set the fastest time in qualifying at the Bahrain International Circuit, giving him pole position for the feature race. Théo Pourchaire started the first sprint race from pole position by virtue of qualifying 10th, but he lost the lead to Liam Lawson at the first corner and later retired with mechanical issues. Lawson held the lead for the rest of the race to claim victory on his Formula 2 debut.

Jüri Vips started the second sprint race from pole position after finishing the first race in 10th place, but was overtaken by Zhou in the early laps. The safety car was brought out after Lawson and Felipe Drugovich collided, and a number of drivers elected to make a pit stop. Oscar Piastri, who started the race in sixth place, took the lead on the final lap to achieve his first Formula 2 race win. Second-placed Christian Lundgaard was demoted to ninth by a penalty for colliding with Lirim Zendeli, but was later reinstated to the podium after it emerged he had served his penalty during his pit stop.

Lundgaard took the lead of the feature race at the first corner from pole-sitter Zhou, but was later overtaken by Piastri. A safety car caused by Gianluca Petecof's fire extinguisher deploying allowed Marcus Armstrong to take the lead after all drivers had completed their mandatory pit stops. The lead then passed between Piastri and Richard Verschoor before Zhou, who was in sixth place after the pit stop phase, reclaimed first position with four laps remaining. Piastri was then eliminated from the race after colliding with Dan Ticktum. Zhou took the chequered flag to claim his first feature race victory in Formula 2. Zhou led the championship after the first round by 11 points over second-placed Liam Lawson.

Round 2: Monaco

Théo Pourchaire was fastest in qualifying at the Circuit de Monaco, with Guanyu Zhou starting the opening sprint race from pole position. Christian Lundgaard challenged for the lead until an engine failure halfway into the race forced his retirement, allowing Zhou to take his second consecutive race victory.

The second sprint race was run in wet track conditions. A pre-race engine issue forced pole-sitter Marcus Armstrong to start the race from the pit lane. Liam Lawson therefore started from the front, but lost the lead to Oscar Piastri at the first corner before retaking first place a few laps later. UNI-Virtuosi were the only team to change to dry-weather tyres, but Zhou and Felipe Drugovich lost large amounts of time before pitting again and returning to wet-weather tyres. Lawson crossed the finish line first, but was later disqualified for a technical infringement. Dan Ticktum, who had earlier passed Piastri for second place, was awarded the victory.

Pole-sitter Pourchaire controlled the feature race to become the youngest driver to win an FIA Formula 2 race. Robert Shwartzman had qualified and ran in second place before a slow pit stop dropped him out of the podium positions. Ticktum was forced into retirement in the closing laps after coming to a halt whilst battling Piastri for third place. After the second round, Zhou had extended his lead in the championship to 16 points over second-placed Piastri.

Round 3: Azerbaijan

Liam Lawson set the fastest qualifying time at the Baku City Circuit and Robert Shwartzman started the first race from pole position. Shwartzman controlled the race to take his first podium and victory of the season, whilst Lawson and Oscar Piastri were eliminated on the first lap due to an accident caused by Felipe Drugovich. The podium was completed by Dan Ticktum, who had overtaken four cars throughout the race, including third-placed finisher Guanyu Zhou.

Bent Viscaal started the second race, the 100th FIA Formula 2 race, on pole position. Six drivers retired from the race, including championship leader Zhou after colliding with Ticktum at the first corner. David Beckmann took the lead from Viscaal early on, but was later passed by Jüri Vips, who claimed his first Formula 2 race win. Lawson, Piastri and Ticktum all recovered to score points after being at the back of the grid on the opening lap.

Vips took the lead of the feature race from Lawson at the first corner. Vips' frontrunning rivals were unable to challenge him due to penalties and collisions; Lawson was issued a time penalty for an aggressive defence against Théo Pourchaire, and Ticktum was penalised after a collision that eliminated Marcus Armstrong and Pourchaire from the race. Pourchaire was later taken to hospital with a fractured arm. Second-placed Piastri was later handed a time penalty for an unsafe release in the pits. Vips took the chequered flag to claim his second consecutive victory. Despite failing to score in the feature or second sprint races, Zhou maintained the lead of the championship after the third round, albeit with his advantage over Piastri cut to five points.

Round 4: United Kingdom

Oscar Piastri topped qualifying at Silverstone Circuit and Christian Lundgaard started on reverse-grid pole position for the first sprint race. Robert Shwartzman, who started the race in fourth place, took the lead before the first corner and held his position to take his second win of the season. Guanyu Zhou spun on the first lap and retired from the race, allowing Piastri to take the championship lead.

Richard Verschoor started on pole position for the second sprint race and controlled the race to claim his first Formula 2 victory. The race was interrupted by two safety car periods, the first coming after a heavy collision between Alessio Deledda and Ralph Boschung. Marcus Armstrong finished second to claim his first podium finish of the season.

Zhou took the lead of the feature race from pole-sitter Piastri before the first corner. Dan Ticktum later passed Piastri during the pit stops, and Piastri successfully defended third place after battling Verschoor on the final lap. Piastri held the championship lead at the conclusion of the fourth round, five points ahead of Zhou.

Round 5: Italy

Oscar Piastri took his 2nd consecutive pole position beating Jehan Daruvala by 0.041s. David Beckmann took reverse grid pole for both the sprint races. In the first race he lost the lead of the line and dropped down the field eventually. Juri Vips lost the lead to Theo Pouchaire who ended up wining the race. A lot of front wings were damaged and race control forced the drivers to pit, who ended charging through the field.

Jehan Daruvala beat David Beckmann off the line into turn 1 and controlled the race ever since. Bent Viscaal took his first podium in F2 with second place and Shwartzman took another podium.

Oscar Piastri controlled the feature with Zhou and Daruvala continously battling until the safety car came out after Lawson's fire extinguisher got deployed. Dan Ticktum who started on the medium tire pitted for softs and charged through to third until the safety car ended the race giving Piastri another win and extended the championship lead

Round 6: Russia

Oscar Piastri took yet another pole position beating Jehan Daruvala yet again. Sprint Race 1 was postponed to Sprint Race 2 timing and Sprint Race 2 was cancelled due to heavy rains. Dan Ticktum took reverse grid pole and controlled the race from start to finish, leading Juri Vips and Robert Shwartzman, while the top 2 in the championship didnt score points at all.

Oscar Piastri took his second consecutive Feature Race to extend his championship lead. He led Pouchaire and Daruvala. Daruvala pressured Boschung into a lock up taking the place. Championship contender Zhou only finished sixth.

Scoring system

Points are awarded to the top eight classified finishers in the Sprint races, and to the top ten classified finishers in the Feature race. The pole-sitter in the feature race also receives four points, and two points is given to the driver who sets the fastest lap in both the feature and sprint races if that driver finishes inside the top ten. No point will be awarded if the fastest lap time is achieved by a driver who was classified outside the top ten. No extra points are awarded to the pole-sitter in the sprint races as the grid for the first sprint race is set by reversing the top ten qualifiers and the grid for the second sprint race is based on the results of the first race.

Sprint race points

Points are awarded to the top eight classified finishers, excluding the fastest lap points which are given to the top ten classified finishers.
