Marlon Stockinger will move to the Status team for his second year in GP3 this season.
The 20-year-old Filipino-Swiss driver spent his rookie year with Atech CRS, but did not manage any points finishes. Stockinger then tested for the race-winning Status squad in the winter and made a strong impression on team boss Teddy Yip.
"Marlon showed well in testing, and we fully expect him to be challenging at the front of the field this year," said Yip. "Experience also counts in the GP3 Series, and going into his second year Marlon is consistent and knows how to get the best out of the car and tires."
Stockinger added: "The winter tests went very well and we were always consistently in the top five, which is crucial in such a competitive championship as GP3. I have no doubt that the team and I can put together a strong campaign, and we'll be looking to run at the top of the field."
