Virgin Racing have confirmed that Timo Glock’s racing partner for 2010 will be Lucas di Grassi.
Di Grassi has raced in F1’s feeder series, GP2, for the past four seasons and has also been Renault’s test driver.
“It feels great to be here,” di Grassi commented.
“It’s a dream come true for me after two years of being a test driver, and from that and from GP2 I feel I’m ready and am very confident in this team.
“We’re here to race, not to do politics or mess around, we’re here to race.”
