Speaking about the season ahead, Luedi said, “I am very much looking forward to be racing again with ART for my second AFR season. It is going to be a fascinating season with races in Zhuhai, Sepang, and Shanghai. After coming second in the Master Class last year, my goal for this year is to fight for the championship. It won’t be easy as the competition will be very strong, but I was able to do a lot of testing over the winter and believe that I will be competitive from the first race.”

Commenting about the team's new AFR Series signing, Team Manager Philippe Descombes said, "I'm delighted that Thomas is staying with us for another season. He's developed a lot as a driver over the last 15 months and is getting better and better. We won the Master Class trophy in 2013 and we want to win it again. Thomas is a fast and committed Gentleman Driver and will be a great asset to us this season."
