“I am pleased to stay in my third year in F2. I believe this is the best championship for me that gives me an opportunity to build on my driving skills. With new Yokohama tyres I hope to deliver and fight regularly in points and earn top 10 positions.”
 
 

Plamen Kralev is one of Bulgaria's leading motorsport figures, having been elected in 2008 by the National Tourism Agency as his country's official global motorsport ambassador.

Kralev's racing career began relatively recently in 2007 when he competed in the Ferrari Challenge Coppa Shell, where he scored two race wins and took two pole positions in his first season. He returned to the series the following year with great success, taking two wins, two podiums and four pole positions from eight races. He also enjoyed success in a variety of other series, winning races in the Ferrari Challenge Italia series and competing in selected FIA GT3 races.

In 2009 Kralev announced he would be competing in the International GT Open in his Ferrari 430 GT2. The same year he also made history by becoming the first Bulgarian ever to compete in the prestigious Le Mans 24 Hours, finishing 11th in his Porsche 911 GT3.

At the end of 2009 he made the move into the GP2 Asia Series, where he raced with Trident Racing. He made solid progress throughout the series, closing the gap between himself and the frontrunners by around three seconds over the eight races.

That precipitated a move into Formula Two in 2010 where he made good progress, challenging for top 10s and securing his maiden points finish at Monza after coming through the field from 17th on the grid to 10th at the flag. He returned to F2 in 2011 where he was again challenging for points with a number of solid performances, particularly in the second half of the season. His best moment came at Austria's Red Bull Ring where he recorded his second ever points finish, moving from the back of the field in race one and making up a record 12 places to cross the line 10th.
