Venezuelan driver Johnny Cecotto Jr will return to the GP2 series for his fifth consecutive season, and will drive for Trident Racing for whom he drove for in his first full season in the series in 2010.

Cecotto made his debut in 2009 for David Price Racing before moving to Trident for 2010.  He finished in the points only once that year, a fourth place finish in Monaco.  For 2011 he moved to Ocean Racing Technology but failed to score a point all season.

He moved to the Barwa Addax team for 2012 and won twice, in Monaco and Germany, before finishing the season ninth in the championship standings.  He moved to Arden International for 2013, but did not finish on the podium again, and was banned from the Monaco Sprint Race for causing an accident.

He has also tested for Formula 1 teams Force India and Toro Rosso in the past, and is pleased to be rejoining Trident for 2014.

“I have to confess that I can’t wait to start working with my new team,” said Cecotto to Autosport.

“After the last season, I really want to be back at the wheel to give my best to win.  I have found people in Trident with whom I have a really good feeling and with great competence.

“My new engineers and mechanics have the same determination as me and the same desire to win so I am sure we will do a great job.”

The name of his team-mate will be announced at a later date.
