After finally getting a team behind him this season, Stoneman has a lot of planning to do. ‘I think we have now established the best balance of support, professionalism and expertise to give me a strong chance of fighting for the championship this season’, he said. Dean’s last taste of GP3 was in 2013, where he entered the final race of the season at the sun-kissed Yas Marina circuit.

Dean will be preparing his race season from next week with the Marussia Manor team, with the driver getting his seat fitted and having his first test run in Portugal. The 2014 GP3 season starts on May 10 at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain, continuing until November 23, again at Abu Dhabi’s Yas Marina Circuit.
