Trident Racing have confirmed their driver lineup for the 2011 GP2 Final non-championship race at Abu Dhabi, with Julian Leal joining Stephane Richelmi.

Richelmi made his GP2 debut with the Italian team at the season finale at Monza as cover for fellow Monegasque driver Stefano Coletti who was forced out by injury. He tested for the Ocean and Rapax teams at the first post-season test at Jerez, before returning to Trident for both days of the second test at Barcelona.

Leal raced for Rapax during his maiden GP2 season in 2011, but joined up with Trident at Jerez. After days with Rapax and Addax at Barcelona, the Colombian will return to a team for whom he drove in Auto GP in 2010.

Trident won at the Yas Marina circuit in the Asia Series back in February with Coletti, who also went onto win for the team at Istanbul and the Hungaroring in the main series.
