Visoiu to join Sainz and Kvyat at MW Arden

by Peter Allen

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.”
