King’s chance

Motor Sport News - - Racing News -

Bri­ton Jor­dan King will make his grand prix week­end de­but by driv­ing in free prac­tice for Manor at the US GP. King, who is cur­rently fifth in the GP2 Se­ries points with the Rac­ing En­gi­neer­ing team, will drive Pas­cal Wehrlein’s car. King said: “It’s an­other big step in the right di­rec­tion for me, after two re­ally pos­i­tive [Pirelli tyre] tests in the MRT05. It’s a dream come true, but at the same time I have a job to do in the car on Fri­day and I want to make sure I give the team plenty of qual­ity feedback and data to help with their US GP chal­lenge. I’ll be ex­plor­ing the bal­ance of the car and cor­re­lat­ing that with the team’s sim­u­la­tion work.”
