Prema announces its Formula Renault 2.0 drivers

Prema is pleased to announce the conclusion of the agreements with the drivers that will escort Kamui Kobayashi in the Formula Renault 2.0 Italia and Eurocup. They will be Italian Matteo Chinosi, Brazilian Patrick Rocha and Frenchman Tom Dillmann.
Matteo will be devoted exclusively to the Formula Renault 2.0 Italia Championship while Patrick and Tom will participate in the European series.
"I am very pleased with the agreements. For Matteo this is his first real experience in car-racing, and after a series of winter tests I was positively impressed by his tenacity and by his willingness to learn. For Patrick it will be important to cancel the poor results he had last year. Tom will have his debut in a championship which is surely very competitive, but he has a strong determination and he really wants to improve. All of them can count on our experience and professionalism." said Angelo Rosin, Prema Team Principal. "Last year we concentrated exclusively on the Italian series and participated in some international events, but this year we will compete again in the continental series as well."
Matteo Chinosi : "After driving karts for a long time I will start competing with a racing car . I cannot hide my emotion and to be a member of Prema Team gives me strong self-confidence and awareness of my potentials. The apprenticeship will be very demanding for me, but in the first tests I was able to confirm the high professionalism of the members of Prema Team who, certainly, will be a continuous stimulus. The one that is necessary to reach the objectives that I and the team are eager to achieve."
Patrick Rocha : "This is going to be the most important season in my career. Last year I spent a lot of time trying to know the circuits and the championship and now I feel ready to fight in Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup. Besides, to be a member of a professional team, like Prema, makes me feel closer to my objective. In the last months I worked very hard . I trained in karts and in the gym. I am looking forward to driving and starting the tests."
Tom Dillmann : "I am really very pleased to be a member of Prema Team. I am not sixteen years old yet, but I feel certain of my potentialities. I am physically and psychologically ready to work hard and to show my real values. Within a team like Prema I am in the ideal position to improve under the best conditions."
