Serbian international race winner confirmed as the 24th driver
Experienced former GP2 and Formula Renault 3.5 driver Miloš Pavlović is the 24th and final entrant to be confirmed in the 2009 F2 line-up.
Pavlović’s rise through the international ranks began after he won the Italian F3 title in 2002 and World Series Light in 2004. He then spent three seasons in Formula Renault 3.5, scoring podiums in both 2005 and 2006 before mounting a serious championship challenge during the following campaign, where he ended the overall standings in third after taking two wins and four podiums.
The Serbian racer joins F2 after a season competing in the main GP2 and GP2 Asia series, where he scored points in three of the ten rounds.
Miloš Pavlović said: “I am very excited to be a part of a championship that is bringing something new to the world of single seater racing. The budgets are realistic and drivers are able to show their qualities against tough competition in an equal environment. I’m looking forward to meeting the challenge and doing my very best.”
Jonathan Palmer, Chief Executive of championship organiser MotorSport Vision, said: “I am delighted to welcome Miloš as the final driver in the 2009 Formula Two line-up. He’s a successful and very experienced single seater racer, and I expect him to be challenging near the front of the field from the outset. By confirming Miloš we have now announced our full line-up of 24 drivers from 15 different countries, a remarkable feat given we won the tender to operate the championship as recently as September last year.”
