Mystery #2 solved: Coletti in at Durango
August 18, 2009 Leave a comment
Great news. According to Italiaracing, Stefano Coletti, F3 Euroseries race winner and front runner will step into Davide Valsecchi’s seat at Durango. A welcome breath of fresh air that will begin to setup the driver field for 2010. Coletti, along with many F3 colleagues are the immediate future for GP2, and his arrival to the series – even if only for 1-2 races – is a sign that the category is still relevant.
Not sure of the finances behind the deal yet, but for Pinton and Durango a much better move than to put in James Jakes or the many other names that have been thrown around in the past month. Bottom line – if Jakes would have wanted to be racing this year, be it GP2 or any other series, he would be there already.
