Prema has revealed its new-look livery ahead of the 2017 GP2 Series season, sporting a look fitting for a team represented by two Ferrari juniors.

Prema made its debut in GP2 last year, taking both titles at the first attempt as drivers Pierre Gasly and Antonio Giovinazzi diced for the drivers’ crown.

Red Bull junior Gasly came out on top, securing a move into Super Formula for 2017, while Giovinazzi has linked up with Ferrari as its new reserve in Formula 1.

Prema will field 2016 GP3 champion Charles Leclerc and fellow Ferrari junior Antonio Fuoco in GP2 this year, with the team’s new-look livery being unveiled on Thursday.

In other GP2 news, Trident has confirmed the signing of Malaysian racer Nabil Jeffri for the 2017 season.

Jeffri made his GP2 debut in 2016 with Arden, scoring two points with a best finish of seventh in Baku, and will return for his sophomore year at Trident.

“I am really honored to be the first Trident driver announced for the 2017 GP2 program,” Jeffri said.

“Having the chance to return to the series for my second season, and doing it with a Team with such a long and winning history is a dream for me. I am sure that they will support me best in 2017.”

The new GP2 season begins on April 15 in Bahrain.
