Jordan King has got his sights set on the Formula One grid next year.

The 22-year-old Briton currently sits fifth in the GP2 championship standing and will drive for Manor in Friday practice this weekend in Austin.

He is the son of former Sainsbury's boss Justin King, who is now Manor chairman after playing an instrumental role in the team's rescue prior to the 2015 season.

Although he is unsure of where is future lies, Jordan King has got his sights set on F1

"For next year, I'm undecided as yet. I'll be aiming for a Formula One team, there's still a long way to go and there's still a lot happening in the sport," he said. "Although I can always wait until 2018, something could still happen for 2017 - so it's difficult to answer that question just yet."

Both of Manor's current drivers, Pascal Wehrlein and Esteban Ocon, are both linked with moves to Force India and Renault for 2017.
