Two driver announcements and one engine announcement today:
Indian racing driver Parthiva Sureshwaren returns to F2 this year following a pointless 2011 campaign. However, he showed improvement towards the end of the season and should do well for 2012. In 2010 – his first F2 season – he picked up a single point after finishing tenth at Monza.
Romania’s Robert Visoiu, who last season came 4th in the Formula Arbath European Series with 2 wins, and 6th in Italian Formula Arbath with 1 win, has been signed for Jenzer Motorsport after a highly successful post-season GP3 test for the team. He is the first driver signed by the team, and the second Romanian to take part in GP3 after 2010’s Doru Sechelariu.
In the US, Ed Carpenter’s new team has signed for Chevrolet engines in 2012, just as Andretti, KV, Panther and Penske have. I am looking forward to seeing what the engine competition will do to racing in the series, hopefully making it more exciting for casual and serious fans alike.
