In the last six grand prix competitions so far, Will Stevens has had as a teammate Alexander Rossi on five occasions. In fact, have formed partner in the Manor in the last three races, being Brazil the last time in the match in 2015. And is that Rossi gets out of the car and leaves his seat to Roberto Merhi, who will complete its thirteenth test of the season. Abu Dhabi will put an end to the first world in the highest category of motor sport from the pilot of Benicasim, that however unknown what will happen to the next course. In that uncertainty they live both he and his teammates Rossi and Stevens, while it is true that the latter has more ballots to keep the steering wheel in 2016.

Merhi continues to as when the year began: with talent but without sponsor. And that, in the Formula 1 today, it is a great handicap. In addition, the Manor is under reconstruction, and you don’t know what will become of him in a few months, although I do know what you want: “Manor wants to take a step forward next year, to try to fight for points in every race, and are putting a lot of effort into it. I hope that goes well. My plan is to try to stay in Formula 1, and I try to see what is the best option, and then we will see. At the moment there is nothing clear yet, will have to see what happens in the next few weeks”. Be enthusiastic with your back to the car: “I’m very excited to be getting into the car. I missed the racing, although I have watched what the team has done in the recent large awards and will not be very difficult to re-put me in gear”.

we Thus analyzed the citys debut in the category queen: “The year started difficult, with no test. Through the months the thing has improved a lot: the team, the car and also my driving. The last few races were quite good. The best time of the year I would say were the last laps in the rain at Silverstone or the classification of Spielberg”. Your target for Abu Dhabi is clear, while, if anything, going by thanking Manor the opportunity it provided: “The most important thing is to do the best job possible for the team, and make sure to have a great result to celebrate. It has been a long season, and hard, and I want to thank you for this opportunity. I hope to be able to offer another robust performance to reward the faith the team has shown in me”.
