Draco Racing has announced that Swiss GP3 race-winner Nico Muller will partner Andre Negrao for the team's attack on the 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 championship.
Long-time Jenzer driver Muller has been a regular frontrunner in GP3 for the past two seasons, finishing third and fourth in the 2010 and 2011 standings respectively.
Brazilian Negrao enjoyed a promising rookie FR3.5 campaign with Draco in 2011, having graduated to the championship from Formula Renault 2.0. The 20-year-old scored five rookie podiums and two top-six results, before his season was cut short by illness.
Draco claimed the 2009 FR3.5 drivers' championship with IndyCar driver Bertrand Baguette. The Italian team will begin their on-track preparations for the new season at Paul Ricard on March 13th-14th.
