Trust Team Arden Confirm Buemi and Khan for GP2 Asia

Trust Team Arden today confirmed at the Autosport Show in Birmingham, that Red Bull junior driver Sebastien Buemi will spearhead the team's challenge in the inaugural GP2 Asia Championship in addition to driving for the team in GP2 Europe. Buemi 19, finished 2nd in the 2007 European Formula 3 Championship whilst also standing in for the injured Michael Ammermueller for a number of GP2 races. Buemi will be partnered in GP2 Asia by Adam Kahn of Pakistan who has recently represented Pakistan in the A1GP Championships and tested for the team at Paul Ricard last November.

The team will confirm Buemi's partner for GP2 Europe in the near future.

Sebastien Buemi commented 'I am delighted to be joining Trust Team Arden and I am really looking forward to racing in both Asia and Europe. It is going to be an extremely busy season for me but I am really confident we can have a successful season.'

Adam Kahn commented 'This drive is a massive boost for my career and having tested with the team previously I am delighted to have the chance to race with Trust Team Arden in GP2 Asia this year. I look forward to working with Sebastien whom I am sure I will learn a great deal from.'

Christian Horner commented 'With the team having announced Trust as a new title sponsor for the next 3 years at the beginning of the week, I am pleased to confirm Sebastien, who had a very strong year in Formula 3 last year as Trust Team Arden's lead driver in both GP2 Asia and Europe. Adam Kahn, whilst still relatively new to the sport, has made considerable progress during the past 12 months since he first tested for the team at the end of 2006.'
