Europe’s eight-race segment of this year’s FIA Formula 2 Championship spanning the next five months begins in Spain this weekend (12-13 May) with Lando Norris leading the standings by 14-points.

The 18-year-old Briton has placed his Carlin entered Dallara first and fourth (Bahrain) plus sixth and fourth (Baku) in this season’s opening four races on the 24-race calendar.

The Feature race will consist of 37-laps (107-miles) while the Sprint race runs for 26-laps (75-miles).
