Sergio Canamasas will make his GP2 debut this weekend at Hockenheim with the Lazarus team.

The Spaniard finished eighth in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series in 2011, and tested GP2 machinery with the Rapax squad in March.

He will replace Fabrizio Crestani at the Venezuelan-backed Lazarus outfit, whose only point in their maiden GP2 campaign have come when Crestani finished tenth in the season opener in Malaysia.

26-year-old Canamasas will partner regular backmarker Giancarlo Serenelli, 31, who will be skipping the Auto GP round at Curitiba in Brazil in order to race in Germany.

“I have waited all year for the opportunity to make my debut in GP2 and the time has finally come,” said Canamasas.

“Venezuela GP Lazarus have shown great interest in having me in order to get back on the right track because they have not had very good results.

“My season in Formula Renault 3.5 has not gone unnoticed and I will face this new chapter in my career with high hopes.”
