Jordan King lands top drive with Racing Engineering

2013 British F3 champion joins forces with two-time GP2 champion squad.

Jordan King will compete with Racing Engineering during the 2015 GP2 season, the Spanish squad announced on Monday.
 
King, the 2013 British Formula Three champion, joins Racing Engineering after finishing seventh in the Formula Three European Championship last year.
 
The 20-year-old had tested for the Arden team both in GP2 and Formula Renault 3.5 at the end of last year before deciding on the move to Racing Engineering.
 
"We talked to a few different teams, and it was a tough decision to make," said King. "There were a lot of factors to take into consideration and I did a lot of research and thinking before reaching a conclusion. 
 
"As a rookie entering a new championship, it's very important to go with an established and experienced team – and Racing Engineering ticks all the boxes. 
 
"They have a tremendous amount of knowledge and expertise and all the necessary resources at their disposal, and they understand how to get the best out of young drivers – which is just what I need at such a crucial stage of my career."
 
Team boss Alfonso de Orleans added: "We are delighted that Jordan will be joining Racing Engineering in 2015. We have been following Jordan's career path for some time now and what really convinced us was his professional approach to racing, both on and off the track. 
 
"I have rarely seen a driver so determined and hard working to make his dream of making it to F1 come true. 2015 will be Jordan's rookie season in GP2 and though there are many things to learn before the first race in Bahrain, we have high hopes he will advance rapidly."
