Ocean confirms Leimer and Rossi for Abu Dhabi
20 October 2009 – Ocean Racing Technology has confirmed that Fabio Leimer and Alexander Rossi will be testing its cars next week as well as being in the cockpits for Abu Dhabi's opening two rounds of the GP2 Asia Series next weekend.
"We liked Fabio Leimer's competitiveness and we decided to give him another experience, this time in a race," explained Ocean team boss Tiago Monteiro. "Fabio is a young talent who proved his value by clinching the Formula Master title, a series where Alexander Rossi, only 18 years old, also secured excellent results as he ended up 4th in his first year in the championship whilst adapting himself to Europe at the same time.
"He will take the wheel of a BMW Formula One single seater in December and he sees this opportunity to race in the GP2 Series as a crucial step to get to grips with such powerful cars like those of GP2 and F1."
