Arden opts for Cecotto Jr. for 2013 campaign

"We had the possibility to get to know each other in a test and straight away there was a great feeling between the engineers, mechanics and me," agreed Cecotto Jr.

Arden also spent time during the four days of post-season testing at Barcelona and Jerez trying out GP3 champion Mitch Evans and Auto GP World Series champion Adrian Quaife-Hobbs, as well as Swiss driver Simon Trummer.

The team are yet to announce who will be partnering Cecotto Jr. in the second Arden car in the 2013 season, which begins at the Sepang International Circuit in Malaysia on March 23.

Cecotto obviously isn't a pay driver in the Serenelli sense.But he's a lucky guy to have had all that Venezuelan business support to allow him to grow into Gp2 over 4 years,when many equally as talented people don't even get 1. From a purely nationalistic point of view,support from British companies seems to very hard to come by -even when the world isn't gripped by recession. Even Calado might be stacking shelves if it wasn't for the admirable Racing Steps Foundation. But very few things in life are fair and equal,so there's absolutely no reason why motor racing should be any different I suppose.
