Jordan King to drive for Manor in Abu Dhabi FP1

Jordan King will return to driving duties for Manor at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix weekend, taking part in the final first free practice session of the season.

The British GP2 driver will also race in that series next weekend in Abu Dhabi, with the practice session sandwiched around is other duties. He first had his taste of a Formula One car in an official session in Austin, after testing with the team in Barcelona and Silverstone, with Esteban Ocon sitting out the session. The Frenchman is enroute to Force India next season with Manor yet to make a decision on their driver line up.

“We’re pleased to welcome Jordan back to the cockpit; we have a busy programme of testing items lined up for him again,” confirmed Manor’s Racing director Dave Ryan.
