Arden Complete GP2 Line Up With Negrao

Arden International have completed their GP2 Series driver line up after announcing they will retain Andre Negrao for the 2015 season.

The Brazilian, who finished 12th with 31 points in his debut season in GP2, will partner Formula Renault 3.5 graduate Norman Nato.

The 22 year-old is hoping he can build on his progress with the team last year and aim for good results in 2015.

Last year we achieved our target of scoring points in the second half of the championship,” said Negrao.

GP2 is an extremely competitive and professional series, I had a very good feeling with the whole Arden team so we decided to continue to grow together for the 2015 season.

I think that staying with the same group of extraordinary professional – in particular with such a good relationship as the one we have – will pay off with good results.

I really look forward to seeing the team in a few weeks and jumping back into my car in Abu Dhabi.

Team boss Garry Horner is also pleased to retain Negrao and believes significant progress can be made.

We are very pleased to retain Andre for the forthcoming season,” said Horner.

Having worked with him for the last twelve months, he has formed into a very motivated driver, developed a very good relationship with the team and we had made good progress by the end of last season.

He is very focused, as are we, to ensure he finishes in the highest possible position at the end of the year with the title within his grasp.
