Jordan King secured his maiden GP2 Series victory in a British driver 1-2-3 at a wet Red Bull Ring on Sunday.

The Racing Engineering driver controlled the Sprint race from the front in tricky conditions, and finished ahead of Oliver Rowland and Alex Lynn for a British clean sweep of the podium.

The Manor Racing Development driver was delighted to take his first victory in the series, surviving the tricky conditions that started wet but ended up dry enough for slick tyres, with King admitting the early laps of the race when the track was at its wettest were the hardest.

“Coming into the race there was a lot to learn and work out on the first few laps as we haven’t had much running in the wet before,” said King. “So the first few laps were about finding my feet and after a few laps I increased my pace and created a gap.

“I then managed the gap and saved my tyres which meant I had tyres left to push when needed after the Safety Car. It feels good to get my first GP2 win and the team did a great job in giving me a car that allowed me to do so.”
