i1 Super Series drivers!

We have had final confirmation of the drivers to be taking part in the inaugural i1 super series!

We decided to split the drivers up into three categories to make it easier for you guys to read;
  • F1 or Ex-F1 drivers
  • Other international level drivers (for drivers in an international race series, not including F1)
  • National level drivers (for drivers in a national racing series)
For everyone except the Ex-F1 boys we have put what they did in 2011 in brackets to give you some idea of their background.

Some of you will have noticed that this list contains 30 drivers even though there are only 18 driver spots on the grid. The way we expect this to work is for every team to have one permanent driver from the F1 pool and then the international/nations will rotate as teammates.

F1/Ex-F1 drivers:
Malaysia Alex Yoong (Ex-F1): Minardi
Italy Giancarlo Fisichella (2011 Ferrari reserve driver)
Germany Heinz-Harald Frentzen (Ex-F1): Sauber, Williams, Jordan, Prost, Arrows
