Simon Trummer will remain with Arden International this year as he steps up from GP3 to GP2 with the team.
Trummer, 22, finished 18th in GP3 last year under the team's MW Arden banner, a fourth-placed finish at the Monza finale being the Swiss driver's best result. He made his GP2 debut with Arden at the non-championship Abu Dhabi Grand Prix support event last November, and will now tackle the full series with the British squad.
Trummer said: "Six years ago, I was with my dad and my brother watching the Formula 1 Grand Pix at Hockenheim, with GP2 support. I said to them both, it would be my dream to drive a car like this one time in my life! Now, six years later, I will do my first season in such a strong series as GP2.
"I will do everything I can to take my chance and to be successful! To continue the season with Arden is another joy for me. They are such a great team with such good people in it, I really feel like I am in a family with them."
