AirAsia secures Valsecchi and Razia
Team AirAsia - the new GP2 arm of Formula 1 squad Team Lotus - has finalised deals with race-winners Davide Valsecchi and Luiz Razia for both GP2 Asia and the main GP2 Series this year. Valsecchi and Razia both tested for AirAsia in Abu Dhabi this week, ahead of the opening rounds of the Asia series at the Yas Marina track next weekend, but have only now confirmed that they will race with the outfit. Team Lotus boss Tony Fernandes has already hinted that the duo could earn Friday practice appearances with his grand prix team later in the season if they impress for the GP2 squad.
