Jordan King heads to Monza
Date: 04 / 09 / 2019
After the tragic death of Anthoine Hubert at the Circuit de Spa-Francorchamps last weekend, Jordan King is now preparing to travel to Monza, Italy, where FIA Formula 2 racing will resume this weekend.
Due to the tragic circumstances surrounding the last round at Spa, no points were awarded for the weekend where a fatal accident occurred during Saturday’s feature race. Sunday’s sprint race was subsequently cancelled.
The championship will resume at the Autodromo Nazionale di Monza this weekend with the tenth round of Formula Two action. The round has been a key part of the F2 calendar and Jordan is no stranger to competing at the 3.6-mile track.
Jordan has raced at the ‘Temple of Speed’ on three race weekends in the Formula 1 support series, frequently finishing inside the top-10. His best result at the circuit was a fourth place in 2016 where he finished inside the points in both of the weekend’s races.
Now, Jordan returns to the circuit racing with Dutch team MP Motorsport. His 2019 season has been positive to date, with the highlight being a top-three finish at the challenging Baku Street Circuit.
Jordan will be looking to build on all of his past experience he has had at the Italian circuit to deliver a strong result this weekend.
“This weekend will be tough as we remember Anthoine fondly and wish Juan a speedy recovery, but the racing will continue despite the circumstances,” Jordan said ahead of the weekend. “Monza is always a pleasure to race at. It is ridiculously quick and demanding, but a joy to drive nonetheless.”
Qualifying at Monza will take place at 12:00 (BST) on Friday 7th September, with the Feature Race on Saturday at 15:45. Sunday’s Sprint Race will be held at 09:50.
