Swiss-Italian DTM driver Edoardo Mortara, British Super GT driver James Rossiter, and 17-year-old Formula Renault rookie Michael Benyahia will all get the chance to drive the team’s season four car, although eRacing understands that Benyahia is not being considered for a race drive and will remain in the role of development / sim driver.
Maro Engel, who scored a career-best fifth place in the team’s home race in Monaco last season, is likely to remain for a second season, with last season’s driver Tom Dillmann plus the two rookies Mortara and Rossiter being considered to partner him.
Mortara is a two-time winner of the Macau GP and was crowned F3 Euro series champion in 2010. Since then he has primarily competed in DTM with a best placing of second in 2016.
Brit Rossiter has previous F1 experience as test-driver for Super Aguri, Honda, and Force India, and has competed in both the Japanese Super Formula and Super GT series in recent years, and is a multiple race winner in the latter.
The Monegasque team struggled last season, scoring just 30 points; the lowest total since it entered the series back in 2015. As a result, the team has moved to strengthen its technical staff with the recruit of experienced ex-Formula 1 veteran Jacky Eeckelaert as Chief Engineer and has increased the number of full-time team members in recent months.
