Danish driver Michael Christensen has left Arden and joined Mucke for 2011. He didn’t have any points last year and his best finish in a race was 10th, but he arrived in GP3 from a 4th-place finish in Formula BMW. He’ll be in car number 30. In winter testing, he set the third-best overall time at Silverstone, and was midfield at Barcelona.
There are still a large number of places to be filled in GP3. Addax have two slots, Carlin one, and Status one. They may go with the drivers who have been taking part in winter testing, or choose other drivers. Addax went with Thomas Hylkema (NED) at both tests, Daniel Morad (CAN) at Barcelona, Fernando Monje (ESP) and Simon Moss (RSA) at Silverstone. Carlin went with Kotaro Sakurai (JPN) at Silverstone and Leonardo Cordeiro (BRA) at Barcelona. Status ran Ivan Lukashevich (RUS) at both tests.
