The series promises nail-biting and fascinating racing and we’ll track gifted drivers through the ranks as they aim for Formula 1.”

In addition to their live coverage, Sky Sports say that their weekly magazine show will also “provide coverage, analysis and discussion of the races”.

2012 sees and extended GP2 calendar that will take in 12 rounds, starting at the Malaysian Grand Prix on 23-25 March. The GP3 Series will consist of eight rounds, and commence at the Spanish Grand Prix on 12-13 May.
