|Racing Engineering are delighted to announce Fabio Leimer as their driver for the 2012 GP2 Series.
After very positive post-season test days in Jerez and Barcelona, which saw Fabio setting the fastest lap times and a sensational race weekend in Abu Dhabi, where Fabio grabbed pole position and the feature race win, it was a logic step to continue this successful combination between the young Swiss driver and the Spanish team from Sanlucar de Barrameda.
The 22 years old Swiss driver is one of the fastest and most experienced drivers to enter the 2012 GP2 series. A proven race winner, Fabio will start his first season as Racing Engineering driver with the target of being one of the main contenders for the championship that this year kicks off at Sepang, in Malaysia, the next 24th of March.
