Force India partner Hilmer in GP2

Force India have teamed up with Hilmer Motorsport to create an official GP2 team in which to develop F1 stars for the future.

Force India confirmed on Friday that they would be giving Facu Regalia and Daniel Abt seats on this year's GP2 grid.

The duo will race in the distinctive colours of Sahara Force India in the Hilmer Motorsport GP2 car.

"As a team we've always placed great emphasis on nurturing young drivers so I'm delighted to announce our partnership with a GP2 team," said Force India team principal Vijay Mallya.

"It's the logical next step as we look to bring through the next generation of drivers and provide them with the opportunity to showcase their talent.

"Our presence in GP2 moves us closer to having a holistic development programme to school drivers from grassroots karting to the higher echelons of professional motorsport."

Franz Hilmer, Team Principal and Managing Director of Hilmer Motorsport, added: "We are very happy about the collaboration between Hilmer Motorsport and Sahara Force India Formula One Team.

"I've had an association with Sahara Force India for ten years and we are looking forward to working together on a sporting level going forward.

"With Facu Regalia and Daniel Abt we have two very talented young drivers with the potential to progress to Formula One. We will do our best to support them on their way to the pinnacle of motor racing."
