Giedo to drive for Barwa Addax in Abu Dhabi

Giedo van der Garde will replace Max Chilton as driver for the GP2 Asia Series race of Abu Dhabi from 5th till 6th February. This one off replacement is seen as preparation for the forthcoming GP2 Main Series, where the race of Abu Dhabi has been added to the calendar.

Giedo: "I am very thankful to the team for giving me this seat for the race. My goal is to know the track and team better! Besides that I hope to contribute to the development of the car for the last races in the Asia Series. It is good to get some rhythm again and to look where I am physically. The last period I trained really hard and am feeling physically very fit".

Alberto Longo: "We think it is a good decision to let Giedo get to know the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi better. The track has been added to the European calendar and will be the last race of the season. We want to fight for the championship and need to prepare ourselves well. Decisions in standings are always made at the end of the season so that’s why we made this choice".
