Giedo van der Garde has joined the Addax team for the 2010 GP2 Series. The 24-year-old Dutchman, who won three times for iSport this year, topped the second day of official testing at Jerez for Addax last month, and believes he can challenge for the title with his new team.
"I believe the Addax Team has everything to enable me to develop and get the best out of my talent," said the ex-Formula Renault 3.5 champion. "During the test I immediately felt that the team and car suited me perfectly. We have a lot of confidence moving forward and the belief we can fight for the championship."
Team principal Alejandro Agag has been impressed by what he has seen so far from Van der Garde, and echoed his driver's sentiments.
"We are very happy to have Giedo on board for the GP2 Main Series 2010," he said. "The test in October showed that Giedo is a very capable driver and able to achieve extremely impressive times in our car. With Giedo we will fight for the championship!"
