For the Asian-based series, see 2011 GP2 Asia Series season.

The 2011 GP2 Series season was the seventh season of the pan-European motor racing series for single specification open wheel GP2 cars. Thirteen teams competed over a nine event series that run from May 7 at Istanbul Park in Turkey to September 11 at Monza in Italy. The series again performed the role of a series for developing emerging young drivers, acting as the principal supporting motor racing series that fills in time between sessions of the nine World Championship Formula One Grands Prix that are held in Europe. The championship was won by reigning GP2 Asia champion Romain Grosjean at the penultimate round of the series.

Romain Grosjean (DAMS) won the drivers' championship.

Following a three-year cycle, the previous GP2 chassis was replaced by a brand new car, the GP2/11, built by Italian racing car manufacturer Dallara.[1] The series will change tyre supplier from Bridgestone to Pirelli for 2011–13.[2] The 2011 season saw the addition of two new teams to the grid, Carlin and Team AirAsia.[3] Meanwhile, DPR was not selected to continue in the series.

Series News[edit]

  • On November 22, 2010 it was announced that Renault would no longer badge their Mecachrome GP2 Series engines, instead of Mecachrome would run its own engine program from 2011 onwards due to economical reasons.[4]

Midseason Changes
  • A number of midseason changes were also made during the season, to replace other drivers. Scuderia Coloni's Davide Rigon suffered stable fractures of the tibia and fibula in an accident with Julián Leal in Istanbul. He was replaced by Kevin Ceccon.
  • Álvaro Parente returned to the series, replacing Christian Vietoris at Racing Engineering in Barcelona and Monaco after Vietoris' accident in Istanbul left him suffering from severe headaches. He continued with his campaign in DTM despite this, and returned to GP2 in time for the Valencia round.[33]
  • For Monaco, Oliver Turvey made his return to the category, replacing Mikhail Aleshin at Carlin. Turvey was later replaced by Álvaro Parente in Valencia. Aleshin returned at the Hungaroring, as Parente had a prior commitment to compete for McLaren at the Spa 24 Hours.
  • Prior to the round at the Nürburgring, Kevin Ceccon left Scuderia Coloni to concentrate on Auto GP. He was replaced by fellow Auto GP racer Luca Filippi from Super Nova Racing. Filippi's vacated seat was taken by Adam Carroll, who returned to the series after participating between 2005 and 2008. Ceccon later returned to the team for the non-championship round in Abu Dhabi.[34]
  • For the round held at Spa-Francorchamps, Brendon Hartley replaced Kevin Mirocha in the Ocean Racing Technology team.
  • For the round held at Monza, the injured Stefano Coletti was replaced by Stéphane Richelmi.
