Simon Trummer will move from Jenzer Motorsport to MW Arden for his second season in the GP3 Series.
The 21-year-old Swiss driver finished the inaugural GP3 season down in 25th in the drivers' standings with Jenzer, but drove for MW Arden at the post-season tests, setting the overall fastest time from the three-day test in Jerez.
MW Arden team manager Julian Rouse said that the team was pleased to have signed Trummer for 2011. “Everyone at MW Arden is delighted to have Simon on our GP3 program,” he said. “He is a young very talented driver who is very dedicated and works very well with everyone in the team.
“We were very impressed with his professionalism and his speed at all 6 of the post season test days and we are all confident he can compete right at the front of the GP3 Championship in 2011 with us.”
Trummer explained that he was pleased to be joining the team after working with them at the recent tests. “I am very happy that I could sign this contract. It's a privilege for me to drive for MW Arden next season. At the GP3 testing in Estoril and Jerez the cooperation between me and the team already functioned very well.
“The team's support is very professional and its attention on every detail is very good. I am very motivated to give my best on and off the circuits and hope to do a great job for the team.”
