Palmer Makes One-Off F2 Return To Gain Nurburgring Experience

1 Mins read

Jolyon Palmer will make a one-off return to the FIA Formula Two Championship this weekend at the Nurburgring.

The 20-year-old finished as runner-up last year in the series, which is run by his father Jonathan. He then moved on to the GP2 Series for 2011 with the Arden International team.

With GP2 racing at the German venue in just over three weeks' time, racing there in F2 this weekend gives Palmer the chance to try and learn the circuit.

“I'm pleased to be back in Formula Two for a one off weekend at the Nurburgring,” he said. “It is the perfect opportunity for me to learn the track before the GP2 race in a couple of weeks' time. F2 provides the best chance to learn the circuit with plenty of track time and data sharing.

“I set myself no expectations for the weekend but just to learn the track as best I can and try not to interfere with the regular drivers too much.”
