Ex-single-seater racers front Team Mulsanne WTCR bid
Ma Qinghua’s addition to the Team Mulsanne line-up in the WTCR – FIA World Touring Car Cup presented by OSCARO means the Italian team can count on two drivers who started out racing single-seaters.
While Kevin Ceccon achieved success in GP3, GP2 and AutoGP, Ma built his reputation in Formula Renault, Formula 3, Formula 3000, Superleague and A1 GP before his step up to Formula One as a development driver with HRT in 2012.
Michela Cerruti, Romeo Ferraris Operations Manager, said: “We are really happy to announce the final Team Mulsanne driver line-up today, during the Chinese New Year. This has a special meaning and we hope it can represent a well-wishing start not only for Ma Qinghua, but for all the team.
“I know Ma because of his career, but last season we also had the chance to see his speed and talent on track, confirmed by his potential at the wheel of our Alfa Romeo Giulietta TCR in both tests and races. I expect his experience to be very helpful in the development of the car.”
