Melker to stay with RSC Mücke in 2011
29 September 2010 – It has been confirmed by the RSC Mücke Motorsport team that The Netherlands’ Nigel Melker will be remaining with the squad for the second GP3 season in 2011, following a difficult first campaign which ended with 23rd position outright this year.
Although fellow countryman Renger van der Zande will not be competing in GP3 next season, the Ralf Schumacher-funded team has confirmed that 19-year-old Melker, who hails from Rotterdam, will be staying on-board.
“Now we want to build on this performance at the two tests scheduled this year at Estoril (13-15 October) and at Jerez (20-22 October). The winter tests will also give us a fantastic opportunity to continue working on the car using Nigel’s experience.
“That is where we will place the foundation for a successful season in 2011. We are confident that we will race for the championship the next year.”
