The 2013 GP2 Series season is the ninth GP2 Series season, a support series to the 2013 Formula One World Championship.

The 2013 season will see three new teams — Russian Time, Hilmer Motorsport and MP Motorsport — join the championship, replacing iSport International, Ocean Racing Technology and Scuderia Coloni respectively.[1][2][3] 2013 was scheduled to be the last season in which teams compete with the third-generation GP2 car — the Dallara GP2/11 — which was introduced in 2011,[4] but series organisers decided to keep the GP2/11 for another three-year cycle in a bid to keep costs down.[5]

Teams and drivers[edit]

Twenty-six drivers representing thirteen teams was scheduled to take part in the championship. The driver who is declared champion will receive a Formula One test with tyre supplier Pirelli as their prize,[6] as well as qualifying for an FIA Superlicence.
