Will Stevens got dumped by Manor in favour of Rio Haryanto and Pascal Wehrlein but don’t worry the Brit has now bagged himself a drive for 2016 with Manor instead.
What? OK, we’re talking about a different Manor team that will be racing in this year’s World Endurance Championship and Stevens will be joining his old F1 pals John Booth and Graeme Lowdon who managed the F1 team last year but are now in charge of this new LMP2 team.

“The opportunity to continue my relationship with Graeme and John was one that I was very pleased to accept. It gives me a great chance to explore endurance racing, be competitive and go racing with people I enjoyed working with last year so I’m looking forward to it,” said Stevens.
Stevens and Manor will compete in the LMP2 class in the World Endurance Championship which will include a debut for both at the 24 Hours of Le Mans.
