Arthur Pic will make his GP2 debut this year for series returnees Campos Racing.

Pic, younger brother of F1 racer Charles, has spent three seasons in the Formula Renault 3.5 Series and finished in eighth place last year.

Pic tested for ART in Abu Dhabi at the end of 2013 but will race for Campos.

Campos participated in GP2 between 2005 and 2008 and returns to the series this year having taken over the entry held by Addax.

"We followed him closely and his future looks brilliant," said team owner Adrian Campos.

"I am sure that he will bring us great joy in terms of competitiveness. We are also working to make him feel immediately at home."

Pic's move to Campos means that six youngsters have been confirmed in the category for 2014.

Stephane Richelmi remains with DAMS and is joined by former Carlin winner Jolyon Palmer.

Former GP3 runner-up Daniel Abt will move from ART to Hilmer, while Rene Binder will join Arden having raced for Venezuela GP Lazarus in 2013.

Simon Trummer remains with Rapax.

The series gets underway in Bahrain in April, with the first test set to be held in March at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi.
