Marco Sorensen has been announced as Carlin's second driver in the upcoming GP2 series, joining Julian Lean at the British team.

The Danish driver, who is also Lotus F1's reserve and development driver, has declared he only has eyes for victories with the team who finished runners-up in GP2 last season.

"I am hugely excited to be joining Carlin for the 2015 season," Sorensen said. "The team has a great reputation and I feel I have some unfinished business in the series. Together I expect us to be aiming for top results. We're focused on working hard now to prepare for the season ahead and the first tests in Abu Dhabi."

Last season, the 24-year-old joined the GP2 grid midway through the season with MP motorsport and finished a respectable 11th in the drivers' standings, taking victory in the sprint race at Sochi.

The young Dane has spent the past three seasons racing in the Formula Renault 3.5 series before graduating to join Trevor Carlin's team.

"We are extremely happy to complete our GP2 team with the signing of Marco," Carlin said. "He is undoubtedly a very quick driver and in the right environment I have no doubt that we will see him flourish.

"In addition, we know him to be a great driver to work with and together with Julian Leal we expect to have a very productive working environment in which to strive for further success in GP2. We are delighted that Marco's sponsors and the Lotus F1 Team have shown the belief in us to take Marco to the next level of his career."

Sorensen is expected to make his debut with Carlin at the first official test in Abu Dhabi between 9-11 March.
