1999 FF2M Season

Previous: 1998 Next: 2000

The 1999 FF2M Season was the 3rd Season of FF2M and the first under that name. It ran alongside the 1999 FF1M Season at European FF1M events and also had its own stand-alone event in the middle of the season. The Drivers Championship was won by Brazilian Ricardo Zonta driving for Paul Stewart Racing after a season-long battle with fellow countryman Cristiano Da Matta driving for Cramer. Paul Stewart Racing also won the Teams Championship ahead of last seasons winners STV Racing.

Rule Changes

Aside from the series name changing from FF1M-3000 to FF2M, the main rule change for the 1999 Season is that only drivers of ages 30 or younger may now compete in the series. The Engine supplier has also changed from Mugen Honda to Renault.
