Reigning GP2 champions Russian Time have revealed that Mitch Evans and Artem Markelov will race for the team in 2014.

Russian Time won the teams' title in their debut season last year and came close to winning the drivers' championship with Sam Bird.

But the squad was rocked by the sudden death of founder Igor Mazepa earlier this month and the withdrawal of Motopark from the team earlier this week.

Russian Time confirmed that they will be operated by the management from iSport International that took the GP2 crown in 2007 with Timo Glock.

Evans will enter his second season in GP2 having claimed four podiums last year with Arden.

Markelov will make his debut in the series this year having finished as the runner-up in German Formula Three last year.

Both Evans and Markelov tested for Russian Time at the end of last year in Abu Dhabi.
