Trident Racing is proud to announce the completion of their driver line-up for the 9th round of the 2011 GP2 Main Series, starting on the next weekend at Monza. Replacing injured Stefano Coletti, who was involved in an hard crash at Spa-Francorchamps, 21-year-old Monaco-based Stéphane Richelmi will join the Lombardy-based team in his championship debut. Trident Racing will profit from giving a chance to one of the best young prospects of the international panorama. He'll be partnered by regular racer Rodolfo Gonzalez.

The schedule for the 9th and final race of the 2011 GP2 Main Series will be kicking-off next Friday with the running of free practice at 11:55, followed at 15:40 by qualifying. Race 1 the weekend will be taking-off on Saturday afternoon with Race 1, while cars will be back on-track for the second and closing heat of the weekend.

Stéphane Richelmi

“I'm taking this as a good chance to start my GP2 Series experience. I don't expect an easy weekend because I'll be on a new car for me and I didn't turn a single lap on it. I'll be at Monza with no stress or strain, and I'll try to do the best I possibly can. I hope to be helped by my experience at the racetrack, which is the last low-downforce one left. In this kind of configuration, the car should not be really different than the one I drove on the same circuit in the World Series, but it'll be the clock to confirm that. The chance given me by Trident Racing is great to put myself at test, and after this weekend I'll gather some valuable feedback I'll be able to take advantage of while planning my 2012 program"
