Lotus F1 reserve Sørensen set for GP2 debut
2 July 2014 – Lotus F1 Team reserve driver Marco Sørensen will make his debut in GP2 this weekend at Silverstone after signing a deal with MP Motorsport.
Sørensen, who is competing in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series this season, will link up with Daniël de Jong with Tio Ellinas dropped.
"This is a really good opportunity for me," said the Danish driver. "I'm actually looking forward to a new challenge. It's great that Gravity Sports Management, Lotus F1 Team and MP Motorsport have given me this opportunity to race in the GP2 Series.
"My plan 100 per cent is to get up to speed quickly and get the best results I can for MP Motorsport, but the practice is only 45 minutes and then we have qualifying on the same day. For sure it will be difficult, but there isn't a lot of pressure so I'm going to enjoy it – that's when I drive my best."
Team Principal Sander Dorsman added: "We're absolutely delighted to announce Marco is joining MP Motorsport, he's a fantastic young driver and his position as official reserve driver for the Lotus F1 Team speaks for itself.
"Although he is new to GP2, he brings good experience from Formula Renault 3.5 so we're sure he will quickly adapt to the GP2 car and be a force to be reckoned with."
