More good news.

The drivers finishing in the top three positions in the Formula Two championship will qualify for an FIA Superlicence, the governing body said on Tuesday.
This is in addition to the champion getting a test with the Williams Formula One team.

I'm looking forward to this series.
Hopefully it will be similar to GP2 in terms of racing and excitement although I can't seem to find much about it on the internet.

Eight races. no idea about the quality of the teams or drivers that will enter, and the third place is guaranteed a Superlicence?
