GP2: Canadian driver Gianmarco Raimondo to make his debut in Singapore

By ,

Gianmarco Raimondo will make his GP2 debut this weekend on the streets of Singapore with team Trident Racing.

Twenty-two-year-old Raimondo, from St. Catherines, Ontario, will face a tough challenge, as he will discover the driving of a GP2 car with no training. The Canadian will only have the 30 minute-long free practice session on Friday, on one of the most demanding track of the season, on the streets of Singapore to get to grips with his new mount.

Last year, Raimondo missed the European Open F3 title by nothing, as he led the point standings until the final race of the year.

He remained without a race seat this year until the team Trident’s offer for Singapore. Gianmarco Raimondo will join Frenchman Nathanael Berthon in the Italian squad, replacing italian driver Sergio Campana.
