Great news for Stoneman to get that FR3.5 chance with Red Bull. In a similar vein, Honda have announced their plans for 2015, which includes 2014 Japanese F3 champion Nobuharu Matsushita replacing Takuya Izawa at ART GP. Izawa will drive in Super Formula, alongside Fabio Leimer, Narain Karthikeyan, Daisuke Nakajima and Bertrand Baguette.
Binder is also confirmed alongside Marciello at Trident.16th February 2015, 8:20 at 8:20 am #292132Tom L.Participant

Alexander Rossi confirmed at Racing Engineering:
Racing Engineering are pleased to announce that Alexander Rossi will drive alongside Jordan King for the 2015 GP2 Series. The 23 year old Californian will drive the number 8 car with the Spanish team for his third, but first full season in GP2.
Alexander began racing in karts in 2002 and just four years later, after winning National and International championships, he became the youngest ever open wheel racing Champion in American racing history. In 2008 the young American won the Formula BMW World Champion holding the most series poles (10) and victories (14). His success saw him earn a test drive with the Sauber F1 Team and he made history again by becoming the youngest driver, at just 18 years old, to hold a Formula One Super License.
Alexander quickly moved up to the more powerful single seaters and was soon winning again taking victories in GP3 ! and World Series by Renault before taking his maiden GP2 Series victory at the final race of the 2013 season at the Yas Marina circuit. The past four years has seen Alexander involved within Formula 1 and in the role of Official Reserve Driver within the Caterham and Marussia Formula 1 Teams, driving the series challengers, logging thousands of kilometers and working with the teams to develop the car.
Alexander will join the team in Abu Dhabi for the first of the pre-season tests, and both he and Racing Engineering are looking forward to a great season ahead.27th February 2015, 14:11 at 2:11 pm #293104

What’s ART’s contingency plan if Stoffel Vandoorne bolts for Manor? Esteban Ocon?
I’m also interested in what Status and Hilmer will do for drivers. I’ve heard almost nothing from them. Sandy Stuvik is supposed to be pencilled in at Rapax, pending official confirmation.28th February 2015, 15:21 at 3:21 pm #293220
I think Ocon will partner Stanaway at Status.
But I can’t see Stuvik in GP2. GP3 suits him much.1st March 2015, 0:47 at 12:47 am #293266Iestyn DaviesParticipant
That would be a good line-up, I wish to see them both in GP2.
Can Status afford to hire them both, and still pay the bills? @billyos4th March 2015, 16:37 at 4:37 pm #293553
Moreover, I’m thinking about where will Bernstoff end up?

Status have confirmed their first driver – Lotus junior Marlon Stockinger:
We are delighted to confirm that @imstockinger will join our team to race in @GP2_Official this season #GP2 #Welcome

Perhaps, Ocon will be there. If Lotus prevents his seat as they already stop funding. It will be Stanaway.6th March 2015, 16:12 at 4:12 pm #293622
Robert Visoiu joins Rapax to complete their line-up:

@rjoconnell You got it wrong about the Rapax…7th March 2015, 3:47 at 3:47 am #293639R.J. O’ConnellParticipant
Fair game, @billyos ! Though Visoiu’s appointment was a real shock. He just said he was retiring a month ago, and honestly I have very little confidence he’ll crack the top 20 given how much he struggled to progress in GP3.
