Hancock still on target for 2010 Formula Two Drive

2009 FIA Formula Two Driver Ollie Hancock is still on target to securring a 2010 Formula Two drive after being invited back to contest in the re vamped feeder series into Formula One. The winner is rewarded with a Williams F1 test drive, and the top 3 secure super licences allowing them to drive in F1.

Formula Two was classed as the feeder series in the 70's then faided out for other championships to take its place in 1974. Ex F2 champion Jonathon Palmer has now re started the series with 100% equal cars, built under one roof, by the Williams Formula One Team. 100% eqaulity allows for the drivers to compete on a level playing field, hopefully showing their talent a little more clear.

"Were all working really really hard on raising the required sponsorship to compete this year, and every single day which goes pass, something changes and different corporate companies come into the loop. Along side this Im also working extra hard on improving my strength compared to last year as well as working on the phycological side of things. I need to be able to have an extra advantage over my competitors, so Im working on something which most others will not be. Over the winter Ive been doing alot of karting to keep in my focus as well as maintain my fitness which is working better than I expected. We just need to find a little more sponsorship so we can sign on the dotted line" Ollie Hancock.

The 18 race season kicks off with the opening races at Silverstone on the 17/18th April 2010. There will be live TV coverage on Eurosport as well as replays on ITV4 the weekend after. After Silverstone they jump ship across to Marrakech on the 1/2nd May for rounds 3 & 4.
