Estonian Korjus joins Tech 1 Racing
12 January 2011 – Gravity Sport, the driver management company run by Lotus Renault GP Team Principal Eric Boullier, has confirmed that Estonian Kevin Korjus has joined its programme ahead of a season in the Formula Renault 3.5 championship with Tech 1.
'Notwithstanding Boullier's persona, the company is not directly affiliated with any Formula 1 teams,' reads an official Gravity press release.
'That, according to Korjus and manager Raivo Tamm, was why they opted for Gravity over other teams vying for the young Estonian, such as Red Bull and McLaren.
At a December 28 press conference, Tamm characterized the signing of the Estonian, whose 18th birthday is still two weeks away, as based purely on talent.'
The statement goes on to read that the newcomer is now lined up to be one of the series' youngest runners, driving for the Tech 1 team with which Daniel Ricciardo raced to 2010's runner-up spot.
