2012 Formula Two title showdown

Bacheta and Tuscher battle it out for Williams F1 test

After 15 thrilling races, seven countries, seven different race winners and plenty of superb racing, this afternoon sees the final race of the 2012 FIA Formula Two Championship at Monza where this year's champion will be crowned.

Just two drivers remain in the hunt; 22-year-old Briton Luciano Bacheta and 15-year-old Swiss Mathéo Tuscher, with only one able to claim the prize of a test with the Williams F1 team.

With five wins to his name, Bacheta has led from the opening round at Silverstone and has a 20.5 point advantage heading into round 16 later today. However, the championship's dropped scores system means that gap narrows slightly by four points. As such, Tuscher, who produced a superb drive yesterday to keep his title hopes alive, must win again in today's final race and hope that Bacheta finishes sixth or lower.

If successful, Comma Oil-backed Bacheta would become the second Briton to win after Dean Stoneman lifted the title in 2010 while Tuscher would become the youngest ever champion at 15 years, nine months and 18 days.

Be sure to tune into the F2 website at 15:00 (local time) to catch the final race of the season live from Monza.
