Racing Engineering are pleased to confirm that their drivers for the 2011 GP2 Series will continue to be the very strong pairing of Spaniard Dani Clos and the German Christian Vietoris whilst for the upcoming GP2 Asia Series Dani Clos will be partnered by promising Frenchman Nathanaël Berthon.
Dani Clos is starting his third season with the Spanish Racing Engineering team and, following on from his very successful 2010 season where he finished an excellent 4th in the Championship, Dani is now looking to improve even further and become the 2011 GP2 Series Champion. Building on his 2009 rookie season in which Dani learnt all about GP2 racing and built up a strong rapport with the Racing Engineering Team in 2010 he became one of the fastest drivers in the series regularly finishing in the top 5 and taking several podium places including a win at Istanbul.
Christian Vietoris had his maiden season in GP2 in 2010 with Racing Engineering and proved to be competitive from the start steadily progressing as he became used to racing in such a competitive environment and by the end of the season he was a regular front-runner scoring several podium places and finishing the year with a hard fought victory at Monza.
Nathanaël Berthon will be making his GP2 debut in the 2011 Asia Series following on from a successful 2010 in which the 21 year old Frenchman raced in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series scoring four podium finishes and taking a win at Magny-Cours to finish 7th in the series.
Racing Engineering will be making their debut in this year’s GP2 Asia series and they are looking forward to bringing their experience and always competitive Dallaras to the 2011 events. Dani Clos will be one of the pre-race favourites to take the Championship and following on from his very promising showing in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series Nathanaël Berthon must also be a serious threat to the other teams and drivers.
