EXPERIENCE AND SPEED
The Italian has extensive experience in the GP2 Series. Being champion of GP2 Asia in 2010 gave the Lotus Formula 1 team the confidence to choose him as their test driver for last year’s championship.
"It’s a great honour for me to join the DAMS team. It’ll give me the chance to drive a really competitive car and battle with the front-runners on a regular basis. In the light of the team’s performance last season I’m convinced that it’ll provide me with a first-class single-seater in 2012. So it’ll be up to me to give my best to continue its run of successes."

YOUTH AND TALENT
Although he says he has a lot to learn, this young Brazilian has great potential. In 2011 he was British F3 champion and the paddock is now fascinating with brilliant race results.
"I am very happy that I will be in GP2 this year. I have so much to learn and I am sure that with DAMS in GP2 and with a strong team mate, I am in the right place to learn the trades of the series and of the new tracks that I will face."
