Russian Time will field an unchanged driver line-up of Mitch Evans and Artem Markelov as it looks to recover its GP2 Series title in 2015.

The outfit, which clinched the teams' title in 2013, enjoyed another race winning season with Evans, the New Zealander picking up two victories at Silverstone and Hockenheim en route to fourth overall.

With only Stoffel Vandoorne as the higher-placed returnee to GP2 this season, Evans believes he can strive for a title win in the Russian Time car.

Former German runner-up Markelov, meanwhile, is keen to build on a difficult debut season, the Russian driver picking up his first and only points at Spa.

"I'm happy to be able to announce a second season of GP2 with Russian Time in an unchanged driver line-up. It was a good environment in which to learn and Mitch is obviously a strong yardstick for me.

"Looking back at 2014, the series was a sizeable jump from F3 and my qualifying pace and getting the best out of the tyres in that situation is the area I will be concentrating on."
