Indian driver targeting championship glory in second season
20-year-old Indian driver Armaan Ebrahim has today (18/02) been unveiled as the first of 15 drivers to have signed up so far for the 2010 FIA Formula Two Championship. Further drivers will be revealed daily over the coming weeks.
Ebrahim returns to Formula Two after a promising 2009 campaign which saw him score several points paying finishes, including a standout weekend in Brno where he improved an incredible total of 24 places in the two races to claim sixth place in each. He also scored points in the first race at Donington Park, and recorded a number of top ten finishes during the season.
Such form confirmed Armaans growing reputation as one of Indias best young racing prospects – a standing first earned when he made history at the age of 16 by becoming the youngest ever driver to represent his nation in the A1GP World Cup of Motorsport. He has previously won races in Formula BMW Asia and Formula V6 Asia, where he finished as runner-up in 2007. He has also competed in the GP2 Asia series.
Armaan Ebrahim said: I am really excited to be returning to Formula Two and I just cannot wait to get back into the car. Last year went quite well and we really started to get things together as the year went on. This season it is vital that I am on the pace from the word go I feel much more comfortable and confident about my chances this year and my goal is to win the championship. Of course, it is difficult to make predictions but the title is possible I just need to be more consistent and keep scoring points.
Jonathan Palmer, Formula Two Series Director, said: Im delighted Armaan is back in F2 this year. He had some strong performances last season particularly at the Barcelona final event and I am quite sure he will build on his experience to be regularly in the top 6 and have a few podiums in 2010, maybe even a win.
