"I'm very proud and excited to be joining a team as successful as ART Grand Prix for a crack at GP3," he said.

"The team's performances in the series over the last few years especially, have been extremely impressive.

"So, when the opportunity came about to be able to be jump in one of their cars for 2018 it was impossible to say no.

"I tested for three days with everyone in Abu Dhabi and felt immediately confident in and out of the car.

"The aim is clear when racing for a team like ART, so I cannot wait to get down to the workshop and get going."
