Arthur Pic will compete in the GP2 Series for a third season after making the switch from Campos to Rapax.

Pic made his debut in the Series in 2014 with Campos and remained with the Spanish outfit for a second season in 2015.

The Frenchman took a race victory in his first year of GP2 racing in a hectic Hungary Feature Race but failed to emulate the victory in 2015.

Pic joins forces with Rapax this season in order to win the Drivers’ Championship.

“I’m delighted to be joining Rapax for my third campaign in GP2 Series,” Pic said.

“I wanted to be part of a front-running team that can challenge for the title, and Rapax has shown over the years they have the pedigree to deliver very strong results.

“They were especially competitive and consistent last year and I look forward to building on this to enjoy even more success in 2016.”

Rapax Team Manager Andrea Bergamini also commented: “After completing a positive season last November at Abu Dhabi, we at Rapax worked hard to lay some solid foundations for 2016.

“The arrival of a talented racer like Arthur will enable us to start an early work program aimed at achieving some very ambitious goals in a championship which is renowned for the high level of competition.”

Rapax took Sergey Sirotkin to third in last year’s title race but the Russian driver moved over to current Teams’ Champion ART for this season.

Pic’s team mate is yet to be announced.
