Talented young British driver Dean Stoneman will make his GP2 Series debut this weekend at Sochi, driving alongside Sean Gelael at the Carlin team.
Stoneman is a GP3 and Formula Renault 3.5 Series veteran. He starred at Sochi last year with a win and a podium in the second race.
“I’m excited; this will be a new challenge for me to get into a GP2 car,” Stoneman said, via the official GP2 website. “I’m not going to know what to expect really until I get out there and get a feel of the car. It’s going to be a great experience though and I’m going out to do a good job.
“It’s nice to go back to a track I have good memories of; last year in GP3 was a great weekend for me, winning from pole in the first race and then second in the second race so I’m looking forward to going there again.”
