Quaife-Hobbs joins GP2 with MP Motorsport
21 February 2013 – Reigning AutoGP World Series Champion Adrian Quaife-Hobbs has made the step up to GP2, joining series newcomers MP Motorsport. The 22-year-old, who tested for rivals Addax and Arden last year, will race alongside Daniël de Jong at the outfit.
"I’m delighted to finally be able to announce my plans for 2013, which have been a long time coming," said Quaife-Hobbs. "We had a very good finish to 2012, with two strong performances in GP2 testing, so I cannot see why we can’t build on those results as we head into the first of two pre-season tests in Spain.
"Looking ahead to the season, I have to aim to win, as all drivers do, although I appreciate it’s going to be a tough challenge. The competition is always strong in GP2 and I’m sure this year will be no exception."
The opening pre-season test of the year takes place at Jerez from 26-28 February, before the teams move on to Barcelona for the second gathering from 5-7 March.
