Status Grand Prix completes its GP3 driver line-up with 19-year-old Sandy Stuvik for the 2015 season.

The Thai rookie will team-mate the already announced Sebastian Morris and experienced GP3 racer Alex Fontana in the 2015 Status Grand Prix team.

The 19-year-old claimed last year's Euroformula Open championship title, winning 11 out of a possible 14 races. Stuvik, who also has Norwegian heritage, finished runner-up in the European Formula 3 Open series in 2013 and says he is delighted to graduate up to GP3.

"I'm elated to be racing in the GP3 Series this season with Status GP," Stuvik said. "It's clear that this is a team that's going above and beyond to ensure that absolutely every tiny detail is perfect. After their strong season last year in the series I hope I can learn as much as possible about the car and bring myself up to a competitive speed.

"Learning how to maximize the Pirelli tyre will surely be a priority and I look forward to working with the engineers during the tests to get a better understanding of this."

Team principal Teddy Yip Jr admitted it will be a big step up for the Thai racer but he is confident Stuvik will thrive in the series with the help from Status Grand Prix.

"I am extremely pleased that he has put his faith in our experienced team for his rookie GP3 campaign," Yip said. "Sandy is entering a highly competitive F1 feeder series and it will be a big step. He is no stranger to hard work and we will provide him with all the support and guidance he needs to reach his targets this season."

GP3 pre-season testing commences in Estoril next month ahead of the season opener in Barcelona on the 8-10 May.
