Fabiano Machado will join the Marussia Manor Racing team for the upcoming GP3 season.
The 25-year-old Brazilian dominated the South American Formula 3 championship last year, winning 17 races and setting 15 fastest laps and seven pole positions. He will be making his racing debut in Europe when the GP3 series kicks off in Barcelona in May.
"To race in the GP3 Series with a winning team like Marussia Manor Racing will be a big step forward in my learning process and in my career," Machado said. "I'm really pleased and excited to be racing for the first time in a European Championship. I want to thank the team and my sponsor Grupo Schahin for this opportunity and I will work as hard as possible to put together a strong campaign."
