André Negrão will continue at Arden for a second season after signing to race with the British team.
Negrão made his debut in GP2 last season but it took the Brazilian a few races to settle in. The 22-year-old eventually finished twelfth in the Drivers’ Standings after an impressive run of six races inside the points towards the end of the season.
Partnering Negrão at Arden this season will be debutante Norman Nato.
Arden International Team Principal Garry Horner: “We are very pleased to retain André for the forthcoming season. Having worked with him for the last twelve months, he has formed into a very motivated driver, developed a very good relationship with the team and we had made great progress by the end of last season. He is very focused, as are we, to ensure he finishes in the highest possible position at the end of the year with the title within his grasp.”
André Negrao: “Last year we achieved our target of scoring points in the second half of the season. GP2 is an extremely competitive and professional Series, I had a very good feeling with the whole Arden team so we decided to continue to grow together for the 2015 season. I think that staying with the same group of extraordinary professionals – in particular with such a good relationship as the one we have – will pay off with good results. I really look forward to seeing the team in a few weeks and jump back into my car in Abu Dhabi.”
