The 2013 GP2 Season, otherwise known as the 2013 FIA GP2 Series Championship, was the ninth edition of the FIA GP2 Series, staged between 23 March and 3 November 2013 across Asia and Europe in support of the FIA Formula One World Championship.[1] The season saw Fabio Leimer claim the title, despite winning fewer races than runner-up Sam Bird.[1]

Davide Valsecchi was the reigning GP2 Series Champion, but was unable to defend his title due to the Series' rules and so secured a test driver role in F1.[2] DAMS, meanwhile, would defend their crown as Teams Champions, and hence hired Marcus Ericsson and Stéphane Richelmi to drive their cars.[3][4]

It was Leimer who opened the season with victory in Sepang, while Stefano Coletti claimed a win in the corresponding Sprint to claim an early Championship lead.[5] Leimer and Bird then shared the victories in Bahrain, before Coletti claimed his second win of the season in Barcelona.[6]

Indeed it was Coletti who set the early pace in 2013, with Leimer not standing on the podium again until the 2013 Nürburgring Sprint Race.[7] Bird, meanwhile, would collect his third win of the season in Silverstone, before claiming his fourth victory in Spa.[8]

It was only after collecting his third win of the season in Monza that Leimer came into title contention, with Coletti dropping down the order after a run of poor results.[9] Indeed, arriving at the season finale in Yas Marina Leimer was in position to win the title, and when Bird only managed to score a point to the Swiss' 12 in the Feature Race, the title Leimer's.[10]

Leimer was hence crowned as Champion by 20 points from Bird, with a further 24 separating Bird from compatriot James Calado in third.[11] In the Teams Championship it was Bird's handlers Russian Time whom claimed a maiden crown, having replaced iSport International ahead of the season.[12]

2013 was also meant to be the last season for the third generation GP2 car, the Dallara built GP2/11.[13] However, the Series organisers decided to keep the GP2/11 for an additional three seasons, having seen three teams drop out at the end of 2012 due to rising costs.[13]
