Frenchman Nathanael Berthon has signed for the Venezuela GP Lazarus team for his third season in GP2.  He has won once so far in his GP2 career, taking the chequered flag first at the Hungarian sprint race for Trident Racing last year.

Berthon made his GP2 debut for Racing Engineering in 2012 as team-mate to Fabio Leimer, and took two podium finishes in Spain and Hungary.  He only scored points on two occasions in a relatively quiet 2013 with Trident, but one of those was his dominant victory in Hungary.

“I am very pleased to have the opportunity to remain in GP2 with Lazarus,” said Berthon to  “This season will be crucial for me and the team. We share the same objective: we will give our 100% to become a top team and fight every race for a podium.”

With pre-season testing beginning in less than a week, the announcement of Berthon’s Trident Racing team-mate for the 2014 season cannot be that far away.  The team’s best result in its two seasons in the sport since taking over the Super Nova entry at the beginning of 2012 was Rene Binder‘s sixth place finish in Monaco in 2013.
