Marco Bonanomi will be back in GP2 Asia

Marco Bonanomi will be back in GP2 Asia racing at Al Sakhir. The Italian agreed terms with Meritus Racing for an entry in the third round of the Asia Series starting on January 22, 23 in Bahrein. Bonanomi is back after winning the final race of the past season at Dubai. He'll replace Malaysian Alex Yoong.

"I'm glad to have found this opportunity and to be back working with a great techni- cian like Bielli at Al Sakhir. Since the GP2 Asia Series doesn't feature extensive prac- tice sessions, I'll have to re-adapt to the car really quickly, though I see a strong team and I'm pretty confident. I've not driven in the last couple of months, after I tested the Indy Lights Dallara of Sam Schmidt Motorsport in the USA. Regarding my 2009 options, I'm still in talks with Schmidt's team, with a good chance to finalize things for a full Indy Lights assault."
