Talented Italian joins Coloni
After a successful pre-season testing at Silverstone and Barcelona, Davide Rigon and Scuderia Coloni are pleased to announce the continuation of their collaboration for the entire 2011 season of GP2 Series .
Despite little experience behind the wheel of the new Dallara-Renault Pirelli tires, Davide was able to find quickly a good feeling with the car.
Davide Rigon and Scuderia Coloni are ready to be among the top teams this season.
"I am very happy to be back in GP2 and do so with an experienced team like Coloni. This is a team with a glorious past and important technical skills. Since the first two days of testing at Silverstone we have had a great feeling and I am glad that Paul and Enzo Coloni believe in me so much. In Barcelona, we have shown that we work well together and we believe that we can get great results this season. I want to thank all my sponsors who have given me the opportunity to be on the grid. Without them my dream could not continue," said Davide Rigon.
"I am satisfied like never before with the line-up we have this season. Davide was able to fit in our team quickly thanks to his good nature and his professionalism It is also a pleasure to have with us a driver who works with the Scuderia Ferrari which takes us back to 1989 when Roberto Moreno, who at the time was test driver for Ferrari, made his debut in F1 with our team. We feel we have two drivers with the right skills and maturity to handle even the most complex stages of the race and we hope that this, combined with the constructive spirit that animates the team, can bring great results," said Paolo Coloni
