Carlin has revealed that its first ever GP2 line-up will contain Britain’s Max Chilton, who makes the switch from Ocean Racing Technology, and equally known Formula Renault 3.5 Champion Mikhail Aleshin of Russia.
Having wrapped up the World Series by Renault title with Carlin, the English team is a familiar location for Aleshin, who beat Daniel Ricciardo to the title in a thrilling season finale at Barcelona’s Circuit de Catalunya but had also been speaking to Formula 1 teams for this season.
“First of all it’s an amazing feeling to be with a great team again, especially after what we achieved together last year,” commented the 23-year-old from Moscow. “I am very pleased that I have this chance to drive with Carlin one more time and I’d like to thank them for this opportunity.
“I know how important this year is for the team, with it being their first season in GP2, and I am determined to give 100 percent for them.”
19-year-old Chilton, younger brother of British Touring Car racer Tom, moves into his fourth season of car racing following a GP2 learning year in 2010. The team switch confirms a return to Carlin, with whom he achieved fourth overall in the 2009 British Formula 3 Championship.
“I’m really happy to be back with Carlin; I have a lot of good memories from my time with the team in 2009 and it feels very right to be with them in GP2,” said the Surrey man, 19. “I learnt a lot in my rookie season and I feel like I’m really going to be able to make the most of those lessons now with Carlin.
“There’s a really good team of people here and I feel very confident that we have a package that will enable me to challenge for podiums this season.”
