Nato completes Racing Engineering line-up

Norman Nato joins Jordan King at Racing Engineering for the 2016 GP2 Series.
Racing Engineering has confirmed Norman Nato will complete its driver line-up for the 2016 GP2 Series alongside Jordan King.

The Frenchman made his GP2 debut in 2015 with Arden, peaking with a pair of sixth place finishes en route to 17th in the standings, but will move over to vice-champions Racing Engineering this year.

Having already worked with the team during the post-season tests, Nato is looking forward to collaborating with the team on full-time.

"I am really pleased to join Racing Engineering this season for the GP2 Series championship. It is a very experienced team that has already won the GP2 championship twice. The Abu Dhabi post-season test went well and it was a logical decision to keep working together for the 2016 season.

“After a first season to discover and learn about the GP2 series in 2015, my aim is now to be a front runner in every race meeting in order to fight for the title."

"We are very pleased to announce that Norman Nato has joined us for the 2016 season,” added team owner Alfonso de Orleans Borbon. “After seeing the progression he made during last season, it was discussed that he would be ready to join our team.

“Now that it is a reality, we are all working hard to get ready for the first test of the season. We expect Norman to be competitive from the first race of the season since has the talent and the work ethic to step up on the podium from the beginning."

Racing Engineering finishes second in the drivers' and constructors' GP2 Series in 2015 with Alexander Rossi picking up three race wins. Team-mate King – who will stay for 2016 – was 12th in his maiden campaign.
