CHAMPION ALEX TO MAKE GP2 MOVE WITH DAMS

GP3 champion Alex Lynn will step up to the GP2 Series for 2015 following confirmation that he will join the DAMS team for the upcoming season.

Briton Lynn, 21, is one of the sport’s most promising young drivers and underlined his potential by capturing the GP3 title at his first attempt in 2014.

DAMS guided Jolyon Palmer to the GP3 drivers’ crown last season and also added the teams’ award for good measure.

“I am delighted to be racing with DAMS in 2015,” said Lynn. “Their record in the last few years speaks for itself and there’s nowhere else I wanted to be in GP2 – it’s a fantastic opportunity for me and I’d like to thank them for giving me this break.

“My aim is to fight for the championship. It’s a long time since anybody won GP2 in their first year, but if we can get off to a solid start there’s no reason why we shouldn’t be able to fight for wins and podiums straight away. I also know Pierre [Gasly] very well, we’re good friends, and it’s not often that team-mates see eye-to-eye so I’m looking forward to having a good year with him. It will also make things a lot smoother and more productive for the team with us working together in a positive way. Bring on Bahrain!”

The 2015 GP2 Series begins at the Sakhir International Circuit in Bahrain from April 17-19. There are eight rounds in total, all supporting Formula One grands prix.
