2012 sees Mihai embark on his third season in Formula Two after
an impressive season last year which saw him record his maiden win
together with three podiums and a further seven top 10 finishes to
end fifth overall.
The Romanian made a promising start to his 2011 season to record five points finishes from the first half of the season - four of which saw him secure top five or better. His three retirements though no doubt hampered his early campaign, but Mihai put these behind him and in Austria secured his maiden F2 podium with third in race one.
He repeated the feat in the second race before going even better at the next rounds in Monza to put his JPH1B car on pole and, despite losing the lead, came back to earn a deserved first victory.
Mihai's maiden F2 season in 2010 saw him again make a composed start with two top eight results in the opening round at Silverstone, before superb qualifying performances at Monza saw him line up third and fifth for the two races.
Points finishes in both races at Zolder followed, before Mihai took his best result of the year at Portimão - narrowly missing out on a maiden F2 podium after storming from 10th on the grid to fourth at the chequered flag, ending a respectable 11th overall.
Prior to F2 Mihai enjoyed a competitive season in Formula Renault 3.5 in 2009, as well as successful campaigns in Formula BMW Europe (2008) and Formula Renault Eurocup (2007).
