The newly crowned Formula Renault 3.5 Champion Oliver Rowland will compete for Status in the final two events of the GP2 season.
Rowland made his debut in the Series back in July at Silverstone for MP Motorsport and made a superb first impression by securing top ten finishes in both races.
The Racing Steps Foundation backed driver had another outing for the MP team in Belgium and qualified on the front row for the Feature Race.
Returning to the Series for the events in Bahrain and Abu Dhabi, it is currently unclear which Status driver – Richie Stanaway or Marlon Stockinger – will make way for Rowland.
“The RSF felt that driving for Status offered me a good opportunity to gain valuable experience at tracks that I’ve not raced on previously.
“Needless to say, I’m delighted to be back racing in the Series again. The car suits my style of driving, so hopefully I can give a good account of myself.
“As always the target at both rounds will be podium finishes. Naturally, if I could add to the team’s wins at Monaco and Sochi, I’d be over the moon.”
