Racing Engineering has completed its driver lineup for the 2010 season, with Christian Vietoris joining Dani Clos and at the Spanish squad.
Spaniard Clos had already raced for the team in 2009 and has been retained for another season. Vietoris joins the team from DAMS, where the German is currently competing in the GP2 Asia series. The 20-year-old lies eighth with nine points scored from one win in Abu Dhabi.
"We are very happy with our 2010 lineup," said team boss Alfonso de Orleans. "Dani's ascending learning curve during 2009 and the fact that he continues working in a known environment, put him in a position where he can go for the title.
"Christian, on the other hand, has tremendous talent and is extremely professional given his age. Although being a rookie, I am sure he will fight for a win quickly. Our ultimate goal obviously, has to be to win the drivers championship, like in 2008, and I think both could go for it.
"Winning a championship title is never easy and definitely not in GP2, but given their speed and professional approaches, I wouldn't want to bet against them. We will know at the last race of the season, since both have the ability to pull it off.
"Once again, we have a great technical team to back up our drivers and we hope to continue to provide them with the most reliable cars on the grid like in previous seasons."
