The Rapax team have signed British driver Adrian Quaife-Hobbs to partner Swiss driver Simon Trummer who remains with the GP2 team for a second season.  Quaife-Hobbs replaces Stefano Coletti, who won three races for the team in 2013.

Quaife-Hobbs won the 2012 Auto GP Championship before progressing to GP2 in 2013, initially with MP Motorsport before a mid-season switch to Hilmer Motorsport where he took his maiden victory in the sprint race at Monza.

“After a successful rookie year in the 2013 GP2 season I am looking forward to returning this season to fight for the championship,” said Quaife-Hobbs to Autosport.

“Together with Rapax I feel we can have a winning season.”

24-year-old Trummer scored points on six occasions for Rapax in 2013, with a couple of sixth places his best results in Malaysia and Hungary.  He will be hoping to improve on his 21st place finish in the championship when the season begins next month.

“Continuing my motor racing career in the GP2 series is such a great thing, and doing it with Rapax, a team that feels like home to me, makes it even greater,” said Trummer.

“We had a good start this season [in 2013], and after that we had to work and fight a lot.

“I know that together with the them, thanks to hard work and commitment during the winter, we can put together a really good season.”
