Status GP Duo In Points In Germany

Status Grand Prix duo Nick Yelloly and Richie Stanaway scored more points in the second GP3 Series race of the weekend at Hockenheim.

Englishman Yelloly retained his record of scoring in every race with sixth position in the German Grand Prix curtain raiser, while New Zealander Stanaway claimed eighth.

Yelloly started fourth on the grid and lost one place in the opening-lap jostling, dropping to fifth. He was running in the train battling for third when he ran wide at Turn 1 with five laps to go – with understeer setting in Yelloly had modified his line, but clipped a kerb and was forced to concede a place to Dean Stoneman.

Meanwhile, Stanaway immediately rose to 11th from his starting position of 13th. He then pulled off a satisfying manoeuvre around the outside of Robert Visoiu at Turn 2 to move into 10th. This proved crucial, as it allowed him to claim the final point for eighth place when two cars tangled in front of him just before half-distance.

Stanaway retains fifth in the points table, with Yelloly sixth and Status GP third in the teams’ classification.

Mexican GP3 rookie Alfonso Celis Jr started from the pit-lane due to a penalty applied after yesterday’s race. The 17-year-old set very strong lap times as he caught up the field, missing out on fastest lap by just a few hundredths of a second. Celis was up to 20th when he inadvertently damaged his front winglet as a car slid out of control in front of him. This in turn punctured the left-front tyre, causing his retirement on the final lap.

The GP3 teams now head straight for the Hungaroring for the next round, which takes place on July 25-27.

Driver quotes:

Nick Yelloly
“I had a good start but, as I did in the first race, I got boxed in, so I finished the first lap in fifth. Then I made a mistake in Turn 1 towards the end and clipped a kerb, and Stoneman got past. We had better pace than yesterday and our engine issue was fixed. It just proved you’ve got to qualify at the front and then it’s easy. I’m planning to do that in Hungary – I’m always quick there.”

Richie Stanaway
“It was a good first lap and I got past a few people. The move on Visoiu was good – he messed up the exit of the first corner and I got a massive run, and it paid off. Then there were a couple of incidents in the middle of the race that allowed me to get the final point. We just need to have a better Saturday in Hungary than we had here, although I’ve never raced a single-seater there before.”

Alfonso Celis Jr
“It was all about feeling the pace, and this race was very positive. I was at the back at the start, so to be honest wherever I finished wasn’t going to change things, but the good thing is I had good pace. My tyres were perfect and I’m really pleased about this. It was a shame about the problem at the end – the guy in front braked in the wrong place, I locked up to avoid him but couldn’t, and the front wing punctured my tyre.”
