Stockinger switches to GP2 with Status

Lotus F1 junior Marlon Stockinger will race with Status GP in the upcoming GP2 campaign.

The 23-year-old is the first driver to join the Silverstone-based team for the 2015 season, when it will make its debut in the series using its own name.

Status took over the running of the Caterham team at the end of last year, but the squad kept the Caterham name for the final races.

Stockinger raced with Status in GP3 in 2012, before spending two years in Formula Renault 3.5.

He had tested a GP2 car at the end of last year with MP Motorsport.

"It is really good to come back to Status and I have a lot of happy memories from our time in GP3, especially winning in Monaco," said Stockinger.

"The team are based at Silverstone which is where my European racing career kicked off and it feels very nostalgic and positive. I feel very excited to be back with the team in my first GP2 season."
