Will Stevens will remain connected with the Manor team after switching to the World Endurance Championship to drive its LMP2 machine.

Stevens made his debut in Formula 1 for Caterham in 2014 and switched to Manor Marussia in 2015, but was unable to retain his seat as the operation signed Pascal Wehrlein and Rio Haryanto.

Manor's LMP2 team is fronted by John Booth and Graeme Lowdon, who acted as Team Principal and Sporting Director respectively at the Formula 1 squad until the end of 2015.

The current Manor Formula 1 team has no connection to the new Manor LMP2 outfit.

"The opportunity to continue my relationship with Graeme and John was one that I was very pleased to accept," said Stevens.

"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.

"My objective is to have a number of top level career choices going forward, and to be able to gain experience in endurance racing will hopefully open up my career prospects.

2I want to keep very busy, enjoy my racing and do some winning and I’m confident that by working again with Manor in WEC I’ll achieve all of those thing."
