Stephane Richelmi to deputise for injured Stefano Coletti in Trident GP2 line-up

Stephane RichelmiStephane Richelmi will make his GP2 Series debut at Monza next weekend having been drafted in by Trident to replace the injured Stefano Coletti.

The 21-year-old Monagasque, who is currently sixth in the Formula Renault 3.5 standings with Draco, will be slotted in alongside Rodolfo Gonzalez after Coletti suffered back injuries in a crash at Spa a week ago.

Richelmi will not get an opportunity to test before he arrives at Monza, and said that he would be treating the weekend as an opportunity to become accustomed to the GP2 car.

"I do not expect an easy weekend, because for the first time will go into a car that I've never driven before, even in a test," he said.

"I'll get to Monza to give the maximum, and without pressure. The opportunity given to me by Trident Racing will be an excellent opportunity to prove myself, and certainly after this weekend I will have more to consider when it's time to decide what I'm going to do in 2012."
