Lucas Foresti completes the DAMS driver line-up in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series

The DAMS team will have a Brazilian flavor about it in 2012.

Lucas Foresti, born in Brasilia on 12th May 1992; is joining Arthur Pic in the French team to compete in the 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 Series. Lucas is as young as his team-mate and doesn't lack experience. Since 2008, he has raced in the Sudamerica Formula BMW Series and the British F3 Championship in which he finished seventh in 2011. The Foresti/Pic duo is a very motivating one for the DAMS squad.

Jean-Paul Driot, CEO: "Welcoming promising young drivers like Lucas Foresti to DAMS is always a pleasure. Our team has trained a large number of them for over twenty years and twenty-four have graduated to Formula 1. Our aim with Lucas, who we are delighted to have with us, is no different, and we hope that his performance will be in keeping with the level of our joint ambitions."

Lucas Foresti: "I'd like to thank DAMS and Mr. Driot for giving me this chance to be part of a great team. I'm very proud of it and I've also got great confidence in the fact that our collaboration will prove to be a fruitful one. I hope we'll have the opportunity to show our speed and our professionalism. I'm convinced that I'll learn a lot, make significant progress and that we'll scale the heights together!"
