Formula Renault 3.5

Pons Racing and Yann Cunha will campaign together the 2012 World Series 3.5 by Renault, in what will be the maiden season of the Brazilian driver in the series. Yann Cunha has been successfully testing with the team in the recent session at Motorland Aragón, and will race alongside Zoël Amberg at the wheel of the cars entered by Pons Racing, one of the leading squads in the World Series 3.5 since 2004, in the next two years.

Yann Cunha, a Brazilian 20-year-old driver also holding French and Portuguese citizenships, has made his single-seater debut in Europe in 2011, after a brilliant career in the South-American F3, where he was Rookie of the Year in 2009 and Champion in 2010. In 2011, Cunha has contested in the British F3 Championship and in some rounds of the European F3 Open, where he clinched one win at Portimão.

Sito Pons (Pons Racing Team Principal): “It is a pleasure to have Yann Cunha with us and to see that he has chosen Pons Racing for his debut in the World Series. Yann has great talent and a very determined approach, and together with Zoel Amberg, he will form a young and ambitious pair for 2012.”

Yann Cunha: “I am thrilled about the prospect to debut in the World Series and to do it with such a high-level team as Pons Racing. The first contact, during the tests at Motorland, was extremely positive and I am anxious to be at the wheel of one of their cars.”

Emilio de Villota (Pons Racing Team Manager): “Yann has shown tremendous potential in his F3 career both in South America and in Europe and I am convinced he will do a great job. Our driver line-up for 2012 is now complete and I am confident that with Cunha and Amberg we have two of the most promising drivers in the international scene.”
