Stevens pleased with Manor season

British driver Will Stevens believes that he has so far impressed during the 2015 Formula One World Championship with Manor Marussia.

The 24-year-old is currently enjoying his first full season in Formula One.

Stevens initially joined Caterham as test driver 2013 whilst still racing in the Formula Renault 3.5 championship.

He made his debut at the 2014 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for Caterham, as the team returned following a stint in administration.

Following the liquidation of the team, Stevens joined Manor Marussia, who had also suffered financial problems.

The team are so far racing the season with an adapted 2014 car and are still awaiting to launch their new 2015 car.

Due to this and as expected, Manor Marussia have been in a class of one at the very back of the grid.

Whilst the team made it to Australia for the opening round of the championship, they did not participate, but since then things have steadily improved.

Stevens best finish came in his home grand prix at Silverstone with a 13th placed finish, however team-mate Roberto Merhi has claimed the best finish of 12th in that race.

'Obviously it doesnít matter where you are on the grid, you always have to do a professional job and always achieve the maximum that you possibly can - not just for yourself but for the team as well.Stevens told formula1.com.

'Weíre racing at the back, but the people inside F1 can still see that youíre doing a good job and achieving the maximum you can in the car that you have.

'So far I think people are seeing that - or at least thatís what Iíve heard. It doesnít matter where I am on the grid, this year was all about me proving Iím ready to be in F1 and Iím ready to stay in F1. Iím not here just to do a year or a few races - I want to earn a career in F1. So far this year I couldnít have asked for anymore. Iíve settled into the environment really quickly and I feel comfortable straight away being here. Iím enjoying every minute. Iíve been welcomed into the team and felt at home straight away - I think thatís why the results so far have been strong.
