Jordan King (born 26 February 1994 in Warwick) is a British racing driver from Harbury, Warwickshire. He currently competes in the FIA Formula 2 Championship for MP Motorsport.

Personal life[edit]

He attended Repton School in Derbyshire, and is the son of former Sainsbury's CEO Justin King.[1]

Career[edit]

Formula Renault 2.0 UK[edit]

King's early racing career began in karting before he moved to open-wheel racing at the end of 2010. He began driving in Formula Renault UK, starting in the Formula Renault UK Winter Series before he began the main championship in 2011.

FIA Formula Two Championship[edit]

In 2009, aged only fifteen, King tested a Formula Two car. He drove four races in Formula Palmer Audi at the Silverstone round in 2010, managing to get a podium and impressing series boss Jonathan Palmer. In 2011, he has signed up for three rounds of the Formula Two championship,[2][3] at Spa-Francorchamps, the Nürburgring and Brands Hatch during the Formula Renault UK summer break. King will be the youngest driver to take part in the modern era of the series.

GP2 Series[edit]

In February 2015, it was confirmed King would move up to GP2, signing with Racing Engineering, alongside Alexander Rossi, for 2015, where he finished twelfth overall.[4] He remained with the team for the following season, where he claimed two victories and finished seventh overall.

In 2017, King switched to MP Motorsport for a third season of the sport.[5]

Formula One[edit]

King was signed as a development driver by the Manor Marussia team for the 2015 season, being retained by the squad, renamed Manor Racing, in 2016.[6] He made his début in a Formula One session when he drove for Manor during free practice at the 2016 United States Grand Prix.[7]
