Ocean Racing Technology will be taking part in the GP2 Series finale, which takes place September 9-11 on Italy's Autodromo Nazionale Monza. After being two of the main contenders in the Spa-Francorchamps races, Johnny Cecotto Jr and Brendon Hartley are taking on the finale with enthusiasm, determined to bring the Portuguese team its first podium of the season.
Two weeks ago in Belgium, the Venezuelan driver was hampered by various problems which kept him from achieving good results, but he has not lost his optimism. "I really think that we will be able to climb the podium in this extremely competitive championship. It would only be fair for the team, which unfortunately has had some bad luck on several occasions. But we have all the qualities we need to make it happen. Having two good races and adding points to our total will be my main objective at Monza," declared Johnny Cecotto Jr.
The former Red Bull and Toro Rosso driver who joined the team at the last meeting immediately found his marks and demonstrated, through his showing on the track, that he has enormous potential. "I am grateful to Ocean Racing Technology for giving me the chance to take part in these two race meetings. What a great payback it would be to be on the podium at such a prestigious circuit. I finished in 5th place at Spa, and it was just my first race, so our ambition is therefore completely realistic," explained the New Zealander.
