Yann Cunha will partner fellow rookie Zoël Amberg at Pons Racing next season in Formula Renault 3.5 after signing a two-year deal with the Spanish outfit.

The Brazilian, who will make his debut in the series, drove for the team in the final test of the year in Motorland, Aragon.

The 20 year old Brazilian endured a difficult season with T-Sport in British F3 this year, but enjoyed greater success when competing in a limited European F3 open campaigning where he won at Portimão.

The 2010 Sudam Formula 3 champion said: “I am thrilled about the prospect to debut in the World Series and to do it with such a high-level team as PONS Racing.

“The first contact, during the tests at Motorland, was extremely positive and I am anxious to be at the wheel of one of their cars.”

Pons Racing team manager Emilio de Villota added: “Yann has shown tremendous potential in his F3 career both in South America and in Europe and I am convinced he will do a great job.

“Our driver line-up for 2012 is now complete and I am confident that with Cunha and Amberg we have two of the most promising drivers in the international scene.”
