Curtains falls on 2017 season for Jordan King
Date: 23 / 11 / 2017
Jordan King will contest the eleventh, and final, round of the 2017 FIA Formula Two season this weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit, Abu Dhabi.
The final round of the 2017 FIA Formula 2 Championship will be held this weekend at the Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi, rejoining the F1 paddock for the glamorous finale of their 2017 season. The circuit is well known to the teams and drivers given the amount of testing carried out at the circuit and while the Teams’ title is on the line the Drivers’ title has been wrapped up, allowing the grid to race a little more freely than usual, which promises to provide an entertaining spectacle for the fans.
The previous round of the 2017 season was a trip to Jerez where Jordan made it into the top-ten as he finished sixth in the feature race before engine failure cost him in the sprint race while he ran in the podium places.
Jordan’s previous record at the circuit saw him have a difficult trip last year as he failed to make it into the points but a top-six finish in 2015 leaves the 23-year old with plenty of confidence heading into the final race of the year.
Jordan’s 58 points this season has placed him in 11th pace heading into the final round of the season but the MP Motorsport driver is hoping to move up the order and score maximum points this weekend in Abu Dhabi.
“I’m really looking forward to this weekend, it’s always a great experience coming to Abu Dhabi. The track is so unique and nothing like anything on the grid and it always makes for a special atmosphere. I’m not where I want to be in the championship which is disappointing but at the same time I can head out and just enjoy myself and hopefully pick up my first podium of the year!”
Free practice commences proceedings in Abu Dhabi on Friday at 07:30, with Saturday’s race getting underway at 14:40 (GMT) and Sunday’s sprint race getting started at 10:10.
