Recent team news.

22 Dec

Today two teams finalised their driver line up:

Renault have announced they have signed Vitaly Petrov as their second driver for two seasons, last season he finished 13th and was a successful  rookie throughout the season. The deal should mean Petrov will be able to drive at the first ever Russian grand prix in Sochi but may be delayed as Sochi is also the venue of the 2014 Winter Olympics. Although Hulkenberg was arguably the vest rookie of the year, Petrov was quicker and just needed the experience.

Virgin were the other team, with the shock signing of Jerome D’Ambrosio from Belgium. Although he was always in the running after driving the car in FP four times in the last 5 races. Lucas Di Grassi was always the favourite as he drove for Virgin last year. He’ll have his work cut out though, as his team mate Timo Glock drove amazingly for the team last year, and should do again. The news comes after Cosworth (Virgins engine supplier) announced that  Virgin wouldn’t be using KERS, as well as Hispania.
