Fumanelli will be at his second season in the championship and already showed good pace and great improvements in 2012.

This season, both David and Trident will aim for the lead since the very early stages. The team, owned by Maurizio Salvadori, is particularly proud of the deal reached with Fumanelli.

Once again, the Italian-based squad has followed its policy of supporting Italian talent, and David definitely fits in the category.

Fumanelli will make his debut with the Trident team in the collective GP3 Series test set to be held at Estoril from February 20 to 22. A new car package will also take its first spin in Portugal, starting a new technical cycle lasting until 2015.

David Fumanelli: “It hasn't been an easy winter because I struggled to put the strings together for a 2013 program. The turning point has been a visit to the Trident headquarters.

I've been very impressed by the facilities and met an highly motivated staff. In addition to that, the investment made in terms of developing the new car has been huge.”

"I already started to work with the simulator, luckily I live very close to the team 's base and I'm sure that we'll be performing great this season. We'll be on-track with a new car, but the experience made last year will be useful too.

I can say I'm expecting a top-notch season. I want to be a contender in all races and reap the benefits at the end of the season in order to be at the front end of the charts.”
