We had an excellent test together in Jerez, finishing both sessions at the top of the time sheets, which assured us of his talent on track and technical ability to work with the team.

I feel it was the right moment to sign so that we have plenty of time to prepare the championship well and I can also prepare mentally and physically for the 2013 GP2 Series.
The target is definitely to win the championship and I'm sure that both the team and I have the potential to do so."
