ART Grand Prix is pleased to announce that Romain Grosjean will join the team as one of their official drivers in the 2008 GP2 Series. The French driver is one of the 2007 international champions and together with ART the aim is to re-conquer the driver and team crowns.
Nicolas Todt: Romain is the second driver after Lewis Hamilton who symbolizes the synergy between GP2 and the F3 Euro Series within the ART Grand Prix team. We will recreate the same conditions for Romain that we had in place for Lewis and hope to get the benefit from them. It was also important for ART Grand Prix to continue working with the Renault Driver Development Programme and we are thrilled that Romain cements this profitable collaboration. The choice of Romain continues ART Grand Prix's tradition of securing the best drivers in the advancing formulas of the support series and to help them succeed on the highest level.
Frederic Vasseur: ART Grand Prix and Romain are already well known to each other after having dominated the F3 Euro Series championship in 2007. The speed the technical knowledge and the dedication of Romain in his work is a guarantee that ART will have one of the best drivers of his generation. The fact that he knows our team so well will smooth the progress of his adaptation to a very demanding championship.
Romain Grosjean: I am very happy that Frederic Vasseur and Nicolas Todt have given me the chance to evolve in the best GP2 team and I hope to be able to pay them back with some good results. I am also very happy to continue working with the same team that brought me to the title in the F3 Euro Series. The objective will be to repeat this result in GP2.
