Fauzy will return to the driving seat of the Malaysian car as championship leader, following two superb performances in the Sprint and Feature races at the season opening event in Zandvoort, Netherlands in October. A victory in the first of the two races, backed up with a second place finish catapulted the team to the top of the leader board. A1 Team France is tied on points for the lead, but with victory in the Feature race and only a third place finish in the Sprint race for the European rivals it is Malaysia that has the edge in the nation versus nation battle of A1GP.
Lim will have his first chance to sample the power and handling of the new A1GP Powered by Ferrari car in China. The 23 year old driver has been part of the Malaysian team since the Mexico City round of the Series in 2006 and competed in each event of the 2007/08 calendar, assisting the team with preparations for the race weekend and gaining valuable race driving experience.
