Berthon replaces Stoneman at ISR Racing
4 February 2011 – Nathanael Berthon will race alongside Daniel Ricciardo at ISR Racing for the upcoming World Series by Renault season, following the recent news that Brit Dean Stoneman has been diagnosed with testicular cancer. The young Frenchman will take part in his second season in the category, after competing for the International Draco Racing outfit last year.
"I want to wish good luck to Stoneman too, and I hope to have him back as a rival as soon as possible," Berthon commented ahead of the 2011 championship. "When I saw the opportunity to join I.S.R. Racing I had no doubt that this was the best choice for my career."
"Thanks to the interest showed by Mr. Salaquarda, we immediately found an agreement, which I consider extremely positive. I will be at my second season in the World Series by Renault 3.5, therefore I can't wait to be on-track and get back all the experience done in 2010."
