Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Manor For­mula 1 test driver Jor­dan King will re­main with Rac­ing En­gi­neer­ing in GP2 this year.

The 21-year-old Bri­ton fin­ished 12th in the stand­ings in his first sea­son in the cat­e­gory in 2015, tak­ing a best re­sult of se­cond at Spa.

“I’ve kept the con­ti­nu­ity with the same team, so there aren’t any ex­cuses,” he said. “The pres­sure is high, but I feel con­fi­dent I can do it.”

King added that he’s un­sure of what his ex­act role will be with Manor this year, hav­ing spent three days test­ing with the team in the post-sea­son test in Abu Dhabi at the end of last year. ● Mean­while, ART Grand Prix has an­nounced that Sergey Sirotkin will join the team this year. The Rus­sian fin­ished third in the se­ries last year with Ra­pax.
