FIA FORMULA 2
A true test of the best - all competing teams use the same chassis, engine and tyre supplier, so that pure driver ability is reflected. Despite tight FIA regulations around the build of each car, suspension and aero dynamics can be expertly adjusted to suit the needs of the track. In an astonishing feat of engineering the 1.6 litre v6 turbo charged engines are hybrids, harnessing the energy of the heat from braking to charge a battery that adds extra power. Incredibly, these little engines can produce over 1000 horsepower and are the most efficient petrol engines in the world. Very much a testing ground for the cars of tomorrow, the F2 Championship is also where future stars start to shine.
FIA FORMULA 4 UAE
Giving talented young drivers the chance to step into the world of single-seater racing car competition, this series proves quite how serious the FIA is about nurturing ability and progressing the sport. Most drivers get their start in karting and move up the ranks from there, so the F4 is an enormous opportunity for the best newcomers. All the cars are identical, so the racing is all down to pure skill. If you have talent, then this is the first step on the ladder to be a superstar in the F1 and F2 Championships.
