Marvin Kirchhofer to remain in GP3 in 2015 with ART

ART has confirmed that Marvin Kirchhofer will remain in its GP3 line-up for 2015, as predicted by AUTOSPORT earlier this week, and expects him to be a leading title contender

Kirchhofer will combine his title bid in the Formula 1-supporting series with a European Formula 3 programme with EuroInternational.

The 20-year-old German was third in GP3 last season, winning in his home event at Hockenheim, having claimed the ADAC Formula Masters and German F3 titles in the preceding two seasons.

ART had already signed Alfonso Celis Jr for its 2015 GP3 line-up, and AUTOSPORT understands that European F3 champion Esteban Ocon is a prime candidate for the remaining seat.

Team manager Sebastien Philippe said: "He is a quick and complete driver who has thrilled the team with his talent and personality.

"In view of the results from last year, the goal will be to win the title in 2015 and regularly target pole position and victory.

"Marvin has all the capabilities to do this, and after a first probative season he now has the necessary experience."

ART won the GP3 teams' title for the first four years of the series' existence and took Esteban Gutierrez and Valtteri Bottas to the inaugural drivers' crowns in 2010 and '11 respectively.
