6 March 2015 – Robert Vișoiu will make the step up to GP2 with Rapax in 2015, completing the team's line-up.
The Romanian, 19, has spent the past three seasons racing in GP3, during which time he claimed two victories, and secured a best overall classification of 12th.
He will partner Russia's Sergey Sirotkin, also 19, at Rapax.
"I am very excited for this opportunity," said Vișoiu. "I have been working hard to be at my best and I am sure together with Rapax I will make good progress in 2015.
"It's going to be an interesting year in which I will have to learn many new things, but I am sure that I will be able to develop a good pace and to be competitive."
Rapax team owner Gianfranco Sovernigo added: "We are delighted to have such a young talent set to start his path in the GP2 Series with us.
"A driver like Robert, who is already a headlining figure in Romanian motorsport, relied on Rapax, and the team will try to assist him in the best possible way, providing our long-time experience and know-how."
