Carlin has announced Sean Gelael will see out the remainder of the 2015 GP2 Series alongside Julian Leal following the exit of Marco Sorensen.

The Indonesian racer already competes with Carlin in the Formula Renault 3.5 Championship, but will dovetail his commitments with a twin campaign in the GP2 Series for four of the remaining five rounds in 2015.

Missing only the Monza GP2 race due to his clashing FR3.5 commitment at Silverstone, Gelael is delighted to be bolstering his single-seater experience.

"It's a great championship that makes great drivers. The opportunity came up at Carlin and it was a good fit, I just want to try and learn as much as possible and it will be good to get experience of the Pirelli tyres. I'm not quite sure what I'm doing yet next year so using this as a building year.

"To be able to do these GP2 races with Carlin who we have great chemistry with and a great history with makes sense. I'm just really happy to have the opportunity. I've done my seat fit and the car feels really comfortable; my feet don't hit the chassis or anything so I'm just really excited about Budapest."

Gelael, who has a best finish of eighth from the first half of the FR3.5 season, replaces Dane Sorensen, who left Carlin and GP2 to focus on his burgeoning sportscar career. Johnny Cecotto competed with the team at Silverstone.
