Status Grand Prix is a motorsport team registered in Canada.

Team history[edit]

Based in Silverstone the team was formed in 2005 to run the A1 Team Ireland franchise in the new A1 Grand Prix series.[1] The team's shareholders are former Jordan Grand Prix Head of Marketing Mark Gallagher, former Formula One driver David Kennedy, John Hynes and Teddy Yip Jr., whose father Teddy Yip owned the Theodore Racing Formula One team. They also ran the A1 Team Canada operation in 2007–08 and also assisted A1 Team Netherlands in 2008–09, the season in which Team Ireland won the championship title.

In 2010, Status Grand Prix competed in the inaugural GP3 Series finishing second in the team championship. Gary Anderson led the technical side of the team. At the end of the 2015 season, Status withdrew from the championship.

In 2014, Status Grand Prix acquired the Malaysian team of Tony Fernandes, EQ8 Caterham Racing, for the 2015 GP2 Series season, but participated in the last meeting of the 2014 GP2 Series season under the name of Caterham.[2]

Status first raced officially in the 2015 GP2 Series season with Marlon Stockinger and Richie Stanaway as their drivers, with Oliver Rowland standing in for Stanaway in the final two rounds. Stanaway gave the team victories in the sprint races at Monaco and Sochi.
