The 2014 GP2 Series season is the tenth GP2 Series season, a support series to the 2014 Formula One World Championship.

The 2013 season was originally proposed to be last season with the third-generation GP2 chassis, the Dallara GP2/11, which was introduced in 2011, but it was decided that the series will continue to use this chassis for a further three years in order to avoid a leap in costs to the competitors.[1] The series continues to use tyres provided by Pirelli.[2] Russian Time are the defending team champions.[3]

Free practice sessions have been extended from 30 minutes to 45 minutes long.[4] Drivers are required to use both the harder "Prime" and softer "Option" tyre compounds during a Feature Race (unless declared a wet race), mirroring the rules of Formula One.[4] Previously, drivers had been free to use both compounds as they saw fit, provided both were used over the course of a race meeting.
