Robreot Merhi, the young pilot of F1 has managed to get a seat in the 24 Hours of Le Mans for this season with the team Manor in the category LMP2. Since the Manor decided to do without it in the Formula 1, the young rider from Castellon had to look for life to return to the premier class, though without any success due to lack of sponsors, or seats in the current teams.
Roberto Merhi has managed to stay linked with his ex-team Manor to now get a seat with them, though out of the F1. Merhi will be able to run with the Manor of LMP2, where you will be able to demonstrate their driving skills. Without a doubt, a great news for the Spanish, which looks like it will now open a new door in the world of motorsport in a category quite well appreciated in the past few years.
Will Stevens, who was a team-mate of Merhi in the F1 in the team Manor, was also left out after the agreement with Mercedes, who slipped a Pascal and the great sponsorship that was behind Rio Haryanto made this last fill the second seat, leaving Will and Roberto out of the F1. It is the vacant seat that leaves free Will that will take Roberto, since that Will be racing for the team G-Drive.
Roberto will join the team to share the box with drivers Matt Rao and Tor Graves in the legendary test of The Sarthe. John Booth, another personality that comes from the F1, now the director of the computer Manor in this category, has been enthusiastic about the arrival of Merhi. For its part, the Spanish rider had words of thanks to the team for the great opportunity that we have provided to you.
