Alfonso Celis Jr joins Status GP for GP3 Series

Rising Mexican star Alfonso Celis Jr has joined Status Grand Prix for his step up to the GP3 Series in 2014.

The 17-year-old driver, who tested for the GP3 team at Estoril last month, graduates to the Formula One™ support-race series having competed last year in the Formula Renault 2.0 NEC series in his first full season of car racing. He ended the year with an impressive podium finish at Zandvoort, and also competed in selected international Formula 3 events.

Celis Jr, who comes from the city of Tehuacan region in south-east Mexico, was quick to impress the team on his debut outing in the 400hp GP3 car, setting mid-table times as a leading rookie on both days of the first pre-season test.

“I am really excited to be part of Status Grand Prix and to race in GP3,” said Celis. “I am looking forward to continuing to improve as a driver and to show my skills. The car is definitely fast, and I am still adapting, but the transition was easier than I expected and with more time on track I am going to keep moving forwards.”

Celis Jr, whose father Alfonso Celis Sr has raced GT and touring cars in Mexico and the USA, is the second driver to be announced by Status GP for 2014, joining GP3 Series returnee Nick Yelloly at the Silverstone-based team.

Team Principal Teddy Yip Jr said: “We’re very pleased to welcome Alfonso to the team after such a promising initial test. For a young driver he got to grips with the car and tyre very quickly and was immediately competitive. His application and willingness to learn is strong, and we look forward to working with him through the initial learning curve that will bring results as the season progresses.”

Status GP are at Jerez this week for the second official GP3 test which commences today and concludes tomorrow, Friday 11th April.
