Theobald brothers sign up for Formula 2
11 April 2011 – Formula 2 championship organiser MotorSport Vision has announced that both Julian and Johannes Theobald will be joining the championship this season. The Germans therefore become the first siblings to sign up for a new season in the series, which was inaugurated in 2009.
Johannes, two years his junior, challenged for top ten positions at the final two meetings of last season, having previously placed his motorsport plans on a two-year break in order to focus on academic studies. “I really liked the races I did last year – it was a really good experience. It’s a good car to drive, lots of power and nowhere else can you drive at such a high level for this cost,” he commented.
