“Lining-up for the 2017 GP3 Series is an huge step for my career and making it with Jenzer is definitely the best choice. In the last two rounds of the 2016 season it was a perfect fit and there is great chemistry with both Andreas Jenzer and his technical staff.” commented Lorandi “In postseason testing we showed that we can compete with the best names of the series. This will be a challenging season in a very competitive environment as we will run alongside the Formula 1 and Formula 2.”

The real work started in the three official post season test days of the Series. Alessio impressed us with his professional approach which was rewarded with regular results at the top of the time sheets. It’s great to continue working with Alessio and we are looking forward to a very successful GP3 season together.”
