Brazilian racer Andre Negrao will move to the GP2 series in 2014, joining Rene Binder at Arden International according to his management company Novac Sports.

The 21-year-old racer makes the switch to GP2 after three years in Formula Renault 3.5. He contested all of them with International Draco Racing, scoring two podiums and a pole position start throughout, and achieved his best result in 2013 with tenth in the standings.

Prior to that, Negrao raced in various Formula Renault 2.0 categories, taking a podium finish in both the Eurocup and the NEC series.

He tested with Hilmer, Racing Engineering and Carlin in GP2’s post-season test last year.

In 2013, Arden International took eighth in the teams’ standings with Johnny Cecotto and Mitch Evans, the latter securing four podiums in his rookie year.
