GP3 driver Ralph Boschung has joined Koiranen for his second season in in the series, completing a full four-car line-up at the squad.

Boschung raced for Jenzer last year after stepping up from ADAC Formel Masters, finishing 11th in the standings and taking a podium in the Silverstone reverse-grid race.

He returned to Jenzer for the shakedown of the new GP3/16 car at Magny-Cours earlier this month but joined up with Koiranen in time for the start of proper pre-season testing at Estoril on Tuesday.

The 18-year-old Swiss driver joins?Matt Parry,?Matevos Isaakyan and?Mahaveer Raghunathan?in the line-up at Koiranen, which joins ART Grand Prix and Trident in taking advantage of the new rule permitting teams to run a fourth car?this season.

?I?m very excited to be joining Koiranen GP,” he said.

“They have shown great success over the last few years in GP3?which is very attractive as a driver point of view.

“I am really looking to get to work with the team and hopefully have a successful year together.?
