Luiz Razia was runner-up in last year's GP2 championship and the team's reserve driver in 2010 when it was called Virgin.

Feb.6 (GMM) Marussia on Wednesday finally confirmed reports Luiz Razia has completed the team's 2013 race driver lineup.

The 23-year-old Brazilian, runner-up in last year's GP2 championship, will mark the news by testing Marussia's newly-launched MR02 car at Jerez on Wednesday.

The 2013 vacancy, now filled by Razia, opened up recently when Marussia split with Timo Glock, citing the need for a sponsored driver.

"Together with Max (Chilton), we are fielding a young but incredibly ambitious pairing and we look forward to seeing what they can achieve," said team boss John Booth.

When it was called Virgin, Razia was the team's reserve driver in 2010.
