Romanian driver Robert Vișoiu has completed the lineup at Rapax for this season as he has been confirmed alongside Sergey Sirotkin.
Vișoiu is just 19 years old but has been racing in GP2’s sister category GP3 for the previous three years. He drove for Jenzer and Arden across the three seasons and managed to secure two race victories during his time in the Series – both received personal congratulation from the Romanian President.
Vișoiu also completed a full season of Auto GP back in 2013 and finished the season eighth in the standings.
Robert will make his pre-season testing debut when the teams get going in Abu Dhabi on Monday.
Robert Visoiu: “I am very excited for this opportunity! I have been working hard with Pro Performance to be at my best and I am sure together with Rapax I will make good progress in 2015! It’s going to be an interesting year in which I will have to learn many new things, but I am sure that I will be able to develop a good pace and to be competitive. I am very excited am I am looking forward to the start of the season!”
Gianfranco Sovernigo (Team Rapax): “We are delighted to have such a young talent set to start his path in the GP2 Series with us. A driver like Robert, who is already an headlining figure in Romanian Motorsport at the young age of 19, relied on Rapax and the team will try to assist him in the best possible way, providing our longtime experience and know-how. I wish Robert to experience an increasingly successful season, getting the satisfactions he deserves”.
