Reigning Formula Renault 3.5 teams' champion Tech 1 Racing has completed its 2009 line-up with the addition of Russian Daniil Move, alongside the retained Charles Pic

Move completes Tech 1 line-up

Move raced in the series with Interwetten in 2007 and after failing to register a points finish, switched to Kurt Mollekens' KTR team for the first half of last season. The 23-year-old scored a best result of fifth place at Spa-Francorchamps before parting company with the team and sitting out the remainder of the season.

Tech 1 had previously evaluated Italian Frankie Provenzano for its second seat at the Valencia test earlier this month, but the team elected to go with Move based on a test he did with them 18 months ago.

"We agreed a deal with Daniil last night," said Tech 1's Sarah Abadaie. "We were very happy with his performance when he tested with us at the end of 2007, but we couldn't find a place for him as Julien Jousse had already been confirmed and we were close to reaching an agreement with Charles. Daniil will be driving with us at the Barcelona test [on March 30-31st]."
