"We are happy to add a young driver from Modena to our drivers line-up", said Team Principal Renato Melchioretto. "Michele arrives with one year in the highly rated Italian Formula Renault under his belt and he should be ready to take the challenge of International Formula Master, which has already established its status as a promising route for up-and-coming drivers.

We are very impressed by the performance of the new car and there is no doubt that the media package including live-coverage on Eurosport will give us a significant boast on the marketing side as well. Anyway, we are close to signing our 4th driver next week and with the strongest technical crew ever, we are looking forward to the start of the new season in Valencia."

Michele Caliendo sighs with relief: "I am still young and I want to gain a lot of experience this year in one of the best teams in the championship. From what I have heard so far, ADM Motorsport has been successful in every category and I am very thankful to my father, whose friend, Severino Nardozzi has recommended to signing up with Renato Melchioretto. My dad knows that my passion is rather motorsport than soccer, but I have promised to give my very best to make him proud of me."

Antonio Caliendo, a former agent of Diego Maradona and Roberto Baggio, is one of the most famous managers in the business of soccer and currently serving as a chairman of traditional English club Queens Park Rangers.
