VAN DER GARDE AND PEREZ TO DRIVE FOR BARWA ADDAX IN ABU DHABI
Giedo van der Garde and Sergio Perez will be Barwa Addax team's drivers 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 van der Garde: ''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''.
Sergio Perez: I'm aware that this will be a very important season for me as a great part of my future will depend on my perofrmances and for thgis reason I've prepared harder than ever. Racing in Abu Dhabi will mean I'll get to know another new circuit that we'll be racing in the championship and that I'll start the season with more race rhythm. I appreciate all the efforts that the team are making.
Alejandro Agag: ''We think it is a good decision to let Giedo and Sergio 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''.
