Jordan King enjoyed his first test with the Manor F1 Team in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday, and insisted he cannot wait to get another opportunity in the future.

The British driver, who competed in the GP2 Series with Racing Engineering in 2015, completed 59 trouble-free laps of the Yas Marina Circuit during the Pirelli Tyre Test, setting a best time of 1m49.661s.

“My first time at the wheel of an F1 car has been an incredible experience and I can’t thank Manor enough for providing me with this opportunity,” revealed King.

“Today’s Pirelli test had a very specific focus and I was determined to make the most of this chance to show my development capability as well as my potential for the future.

“We had a trouble-free day, so I could really get stuck into the plan, and this enabled me to build my confidence as the afternoon progressed. I was really fortunate to drive the car for 59 laps and I’m pleased with my lap time considering all the elements of the programme.

“I can’t wait to do it again sometime. Soon, I hope!”
