AR1.com has learned from its Italian sources that 25-year old former GP2 champion Stefano Coletti has signed with KV Racing and will partner with Sebastien Bourdais in 2015. Coletti will drive the full season and is headed to Indianapolis for a seat fitting, to prepare to test at NOLA on March 14th, followed by other tests in Barber and Sebring before the first race of the season in ST. Petersburg on March 29th.
02/08/15 Word from AR1's Monaco Field Bureau it the Monegasque driver Stefano Coletti, who tested earlier this offseason with Schmidt Peterson Motorsports, is on his way to The Big Easy to test with KV Racing Technology. We're not sure yet if Coletti will be testing Tuesday, Wednesday or both of the IndyCar testing days this week at New Orleans Motorsports Park.
KV already has four-time Champ Car champion Sebastien Bourdais under contract. Apparently, the 25-year-old 7-time GP2 winner Coletti has the inside track to fill the seat vacated by 2014 driver Sebastian Saavedra.
