Formula Renault 3.5

I.S.R. Racing, one of the leading teams in World Series by Renault FR3.5, have announced their driver line-up for the forthcoming season. The colours of the Czech team will be defended by Briton Sam Bird and American Jake Rosenzweig.

Bird is making the switch over from GP2, where he was a race winner and consistent front-runner. He will, in parallel, continue his duties with the MERCEDES AMG PETRONAS Formula One Team in Brackley and during the Formula One race weekends.
It will be the third season in FR3.5 for Jake Rosenzweig. He has previously raced Carlin and Mofaz machinery.

Igor Salaquarda – team principal :

„I am very happy with our line-up. We have two talented drivers. The new car will generate a lot of downforce compared to last year’s, as it features DRS, launch control and other technology similar to the F1. Sam’s and Jake’s experience could be a big advantage from this point of view.”

Sam Bird :

“I am extremely pleased about this opportunity to drive for I.S.R. in World Series by Renault. World Series is a great Championship in which numerous Formula One drivers have shone in the past, and this year’s field seems to be particularly competitive. I.S.R. have a proven track record and I am really looking forward to joining forces with them.”

Jake Rosenzweig :

“I am very much looking forward to working with everyone at I.S.R. this season and can not wait for the first test so that we can start developing the new car. I hope that this collaboration will produce many great results over the course of the season."
