Emil Bernstorff has completed the Arden International driver line-up for the upcoming GP3 series, joining Aleksander Bosak and Kevin Ceccon at the British team.

The 21-year-old finished fifth in the drivers' standings last season, notching up a victory in the Austrian sprint race as well as four further podium appearances. Bernstorff, who has British and Danish heritage, has switched teams from Carlin to Arden for his second season in the series and feels he has to team behind him to build on last year's momentum and challenge for the title.

"I am very happy and excited to be racing with Arden this year - a great team with a great history of success," Bernstorff said. "When I tested with them in Abu Dhabi 2013 I immediately liked both the car and the atmosphere within the team. This feeling has grown stronger over the last few weeks with pre-season preparations at the workshop.
