The Ocean Racing Technology team ran by former F1 driver Tiago Monteiro has announced its first driver for the GP2 Main Series. Karun Chandhok will join the team in May for the team's first GP2 Main Series race.
At 24, Karun has two complete seasons in the series under his belt as well as two victories and therefore brings great experience with him that will be decisive for the all new team in the GP2 Main Series.
Commenting on his new driver Tiago Monteiro said: "It is very important for Ocean Racing Technology to guarantee the presence of a talented driver such as Karun Chandhok. He is fast, hard worker and already has some great results on different kinds of tracks. He always had an excellent working relationship with engineers and team principals that he has previously worked with and has won two races in the GP2 Main Series.
"It is extremely positive that he signed this contract well before the championship starts because this way we can immediately begin work for the Main Series. For us, it is important that an experienced and fast driver like Karun puts his confidence in Ocean Racing Technology, which is a very young team. He is the driver we need to achieve our goals, which are to be competitive right away and consistently into the points."
