Palmer joins Carlin for 2013 title assault
10 December 2012 – Jolyon Palmer will switch to Carlin for his third GP2 campaign next year, joining Felipe Nasr at the Farnham-based outfit. The Briton made his series debut with Arden in 2011, before moving to iSport for 2012 where he claimed a maiden victory in Monaco.
The 21-year-old, who also secured podium finishes at Silverstone and Monza en route to 11th in the standings, has now set his sights on title glory.
"I’m very happy to be racing for Carlin in 2013," said Palmer. "The team showed good pace this year in their second GP2 season and they are hungry to build on that. My aim is to be fighting for the championship and I’m confident we are in a position to do that."
Palmer and Nasr will form a fresh line-up at Carlin next season, with Max Chilton - who is tipped for a Formula 1 seat at Marussia - and Rio Haryanto departing the team.
