Muller To Remain With Jenzer For GP3 Title Shot

Swiss driver Nico Muller will stay in the GP3 Series in 2011 with the Jenzer Motorsport team, and intends to use his experience to challenge for the title.

18-year-old Muller impressed in the inaugural season of the category, winning two races and finishing third in the standings behind Robert Wickens and champion Esteban Gutierrez. Muller did not start the season amongst the favourites, having stepped up from Formula Renault 2.0 over the winter.

With many of the championship's more experienced frontrunners likely to step up to GP2 or a similar category for 2011, Muller and Jenzer have their sights' set on the GP3 title.

“We're delighted to have Nico in our team once again and by combining our forces we will have a strong all-Swiss package ideally placed to go for the title,” said team owner Andreas Jenzer.

Muller added: “I know everybody in the team very well and they've worked hard to achieve what we've achieved so far. They're all extremely motivated to go for the title, and in the end that's what makes the difference!”

In other news, it has been announced that Dutchman Nigel Melker will remain in the series with his team Mucke Motorsport.
