Leonardo Cordeiro: “GP3 offers me the direct contact with the F1 extravaganza and teams, which brings me closer to my main professional objective. I thank Mark Webber and Christian Horner for the opportunity to join the team. The team is not only me and both of them, but for all the union of our knowledge and the efforts of each team member that I am confident will give their best to achieve with me the best results in this first GP3 season”
