Experienced GP2 driver Dani Clos and Formula 2 convert Mihai Marinescu will drive for Rapax in the non-championship Abu Dhabi races.
Spanish 23-year-old Clos joins Rapax for the GP2 Final event after three years with Racing Engineering, the high point of which was his fourth place in the 2010 standings, when he took his only main series win to date in the Istanbul sprint race.
Marinescu has raced in F2 for the past two years, the Romanian winning at Monza this season on the way to fifth in the championship.
After taking Pastor Maldonado to the 2010 title, Rapax had a disappointing 2011 GP2 season with Fabio Leimer and Julian Leal, scoring just one victory and slipping to 10th in the teams' standings.
