F3 Euro Series champion Romain Grosjean will race for ART Grand Prix in GP2 next season, the team announced on Tuesday.
The 21-year-old French driver, who was also confirmed as Renault's F1 tester on Monday, will join ART in the hope of helping the team reclaim the championship after missing out in 2007 following their victorious seasons in 2005 and 2006.
The announcement means Grosjean will race with the same team he competed for in the Euro Series.
"Romain is the second driver after Lewis Hamilton who symbolizes the synergy between GP2 and the F3 Euro Series within the ART Grand Prix team," said team boss Nicolas Todt.
"We will recreate the same conditions for Romain that we had in place for Lewis and hope to get the benefit from them.
"It was also important for ART Grand Prix to continue working with the Renault Driver Development Programme and we are thrilled that Romain cements this profitable collaboration.
"The choice of Romain continues ART Grand Prix's tradition of securing the best drivers in the advancing formulas of the support series and to help them succeed on the highest level."
Grosjean added: "I am very happy that Frederic Vasseur and Nicolas Todt have given me the chance to evolve in the best GP2 team and I hope to be able to pay them back with some good results.
"I am also very happy to continue working with the same team that brought me to the title in the F3 Euro Series. The objective will be to repeat this result in GP2."
ART are yet to announce who will partner Grosjean next year
