Nick Yelloly moves to Status for 2014 GP3 campaign

The 23-year-old contested the 2011 and '13 campaigns in GP3, finishing sixth in the points last season with Carlin.

In between, he took fifth position in the 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 Series, with two wins.

"I'm very happy to be joining Status GP for 2014," said Yelloly. "We have a clear aim to win the championship together.

"I'd like to thank my father David and my manager Mark Blundell for making it happen with Status GP. We're really looking forward to getting started."

Teddy Yip Jr, team principal of the Silverstone-based Status squad, added: "Nick has been a highly successful driver over the past two seasons, and we know that his experience and leadership as well as speed are important assets for our driver line-up in GP3 this season.

"He is ready to win this championship, and the team has redoubled its efforts this winter to provide Nick and his team-mates with a title-winning platform."

Yelloly, who scored four podiums last year, is the first driver confirmed this season by Status.
