Team / HWA RACELAB
Few drivers have earned the love of the F2 community like Artem Markelov. The smiley Russian is a firm fan favourite, and will return to the grid full-time in 2020, following a season in Super Formula.
An experienced operator at this level, Markelov might not be the strongest qualifier on the grid, but the Russian is known for his lethal overtaking prowess and an uncanny ability to pull a result out of the hat when he’s against the odds. Write him off at your peril.
The 2017 vice-champion is an eight-time F2 race winner and has appeared on the podium no fewer than 14 times.
Newcomers HWA RACELAB will be looking to call on that knowledge and expertise as they enter their rookie season of the championship. Markelov could be exactly what they need.
