Formula One's Virgin Racing Team of Britain has signed Belgian driver Jerome D'Ambrosio as its second driver for the 2011 season.
The 24-year-old D'Ambrosio spent the last four seasons competing in the GP2 Series and replaces Brazil's Lucas Di Grassi.
The British team announced Tuesday that D'Ambrosio will partner with lead driver Timo Glock of Germany. Neither Glock nor Di Grassi scored a point in 2010, Virgin Racing's debut year.
D'Ambrosio becomes the first Belgian driver in Formula One since Philippe Adams raced for Lotus in 1994.
A team statement said that D'Ambrosio successfully completed an evaluation which included practice sessions for the Singapore, Japanese, Korean and Brazilian Grand Prix races.
