Reigning GP2 Series champions RUSSIAN TIME unveiled their 2014 driver line-up yesterday.
New Zealand-born teenager Mitch Evans is to take the first seat for the squad, as he moves into his second season in the category, while German F3 graduate Artem Markelov will occupy the second car.
The 19-year-old Evans moves into 2014 with a title challenge in mind, having achieved four podiums with an inconsistent Arden squad last season, taking 14th in the standings.
Meanwhile, former Lotus-Motopark racer Markelov finished runner-up to Marvin Kirchhöfer in the German F3 Series.
This season will mark a massive step for the teenager Markelov, who decided to skip both international Formula 3 competition, as well as the GP3 Series. One will only know as the season progresses whether this gamble was worth the risk.
The news of driver unveiling follows the announcement that iSport International will be running the RUSSIAN TIME race team after Motopark’s decision to discontinue their relationship with GP2 champions.
