Valsecchi leaves Durango.


Durango Corse will head to next weekend's resumption of the GP2 Series with a different line-up following Davide Valsecchi's decision to step back from his ride with the team.

The most successful Durango driver in recent seasons, having taken two victories and four podium finishes, the Italian has been pulled from the line-up by his management, which requested that his contract be cancelled with immediate effect

Durango expects to be able to reveal the identity of the driver who will replace Valsecchi alongside French rookie Nelson Panciatici shortly. The Italian leaves GP2 occupying twelfth place in the standings.

Yes very convenient now that Grosjean is certain to replace Piquet. Wouldn't be surprised if he becomes a Renault test driver as well. Hmmm it all works out well in the Renault family eh? :rolleyes:
