Pierre Gasly will remain in the GP2 Series after completing the lineup at newcomers PREMA Racing.
A member of the Red Bull Junior Team, Gasly makes the switch from DAMS with whom he raced last season.
“It will be another thrilling and very busy season continuing my work as reserve driver for Red Bull Racing but my priority is clearly to win the GP2 series and I couldn’t be doing it with a better group of people than the Prema team,” Gasly said.
“They have a great reputation and ability for winning championships and I know that their skills and commitment along with my GP2 experience will give us what we need this season.”
The 19-year-old Frenchman drove in the post-season tests with PREMA last December and clicked with the team immediately: “I quickly had a great feeling with Prema as soon as we started working together at the GP2 Abu Dhabi test last December, extremely professional and experienced.”
Gasly will be partnering GP2 rookie Antonio Giovinazzi at the Italian squad.
