Servia moves to Dreyer & Reinbold

"I'm at the best point in my career and it was very important to partner with the right team," he said. "I started on the front row for the Indianapolis 500 and I want to improve on that."

Last year Dreyer & Reinbold Racing fielded two cars in the series, for Justin Wilson and Ana Beatriz, but a second car was not included in the day's announcement. The team said only that "Dreyer & Reinbold Racing continues to work towards a second full-time entry for the 2012 season."

Former DRR driver Justin Wilson - who was sidelined for the last five races of 2011 because of a back injury sustained during pre-race practice at Mid-Ohio Sports Car Course - is believed to be returning to Dale Coyne Racing, but there has not yet been an official announcement confirming his signing by the team.

Servia's 2011 Newman/Haas Racing team mate James Hinchcliffe has already landed the plum race seat in the Andretti Autosports Go Daddy-sponsored car, replacing Danica Patrick who has departed IndyCar for full-time NASCAR Nationwide Series competition in 2012.
