The ART Grand Prix team is pleased to announce the confirmation of the 2005 F3 Euroseries champion, Lewis Hamilton to their 2006 driver line up. The twenty one year old British racer, who competed for the ASM F3 team last year, will contest the coming season alongside Alexandre Premat as they fight to secure the team's second successive GP2 title.

Nicolas Todt:
ART GP's first season was exceptional in terms of results, and we are now able to continue our charge in the series with the same dynamics by ensuring we have a pair of exceptional drivers, such as the combination of Prémat and Hamilton. Lewis has proven in all the lower formulas in which he competed that he has a natural talent for driving and has displayed great professionalism. We are thrilled to be able to count on his pure speed and maturity when it comes to defending both our drivers and constructors crowns.

Frédéric Vasseur:
It is a great pleasure to sign Lewis, a logical continuation for us after his title in the F3Euroseries last year and his potential already displayed during testing in the GP2 car. Lewis is integrated very well into the team and I am happy and proud to be able to count on him as one of our drivers.

Lewis Hamilton:
I'm really excited about 2006! It is a great opportunity to be able to be a part of ART. I'm looking forward to it after the fantastic season we had last year and I'm sure the team will do a fantastic job this year. My goal is to win races and maybe the championship, if I can. I have to work hard and make sure we maximize the time we have to develop car
