Vaxiviere retains Lotus drive for 2015 season

1 Mins read

Matthieu Vaxiviere has retained his Lotus drive for a second season of the Formula Renault 3.5 series, joining Meindert van Buuren within the team.

The Frenchman had a promising rookie season that was interrupted by a back injury caused by a crash during the Monaco round of the series, and was forced to miss the rounds at Spa-Francorchamps and Moscow Raceway as a result, as well as his planned assault on the 24 Hours of Le Mans in a Porsche GTE Am car.

On his return to the series at the Nurburgring, Vaxiviere finished on the podium behind only race winner Roberto Merhi, and then took an additional podium finish with a third place in the opening race at Paul Ricard.

The 2011 French F4 Champion continued with Lotus into the post-season tests at Jerez, and was one of the quickest drivers present, and will be looking to continue his good form from last year into 2015.

“After a promising 2014 season I am ready for a new challenge, because I want to try and fight for more podium finishes and for my first victory in Formula Renault 3.5,” said Vaxiviere. “I believe that I am more than ready for this mission as well as my team.

“I will do everything I can to make sure we get a good result in the championship.”
