Robert Visoiu has signed for MW Arden to partner Red Bull Juniors Carlos Sainz Jr and Daniil Kvyat in the GP3 Series next season.
The 16-year-old Romanian drove for the team during the two-day post-season test at Estoril in November, setting the fifth fastest time on both days. He had previously turned out for the Lotus GP team at the Jerez test.
Visoiu enjoyed a solid debut season in the category with Jenzer Motorsport, claiming a second place at the first weekend in Barcelona before finishing the year in 14th overall. He also won a race in Italian F3 in what was his second campaign in cars after finishing fourth in his rookie year of Formula Abarth in 2010.
“MW Arden is a professional team,” said Visoiu. “I have realised this since the tests two months ago.”
