You may have heard the name Seb Morris before. He has been a key player in British motorsport in the past few years, earning the BRDC Rising Star accolade and claiming the 2012 Ginetta Junior Championship – a series which runs alongside the BTCC. After moving to single seaters in 2013, Morris is certainly one to watch for the future, as he has earned a place in Caterham’s Racing Academy. His career goes from strength to strength. Could we see him in Formula One in the future? He is certainly a talented prospect.

Future In Formula One?
“Joining the Caterham Academy is pretty huge for me,” Morris said. The Academy is a select group of just six drivers, (including its newest recruit) and one which regularly offers opportunities for its members. It is key to note that both Will Stevens and Alexander Rossi received track time in the CT04 last year, with the latter taking part in FP1 in Austin. “To be part of an F1 team, with all the support and knowledge that brings, is a massive step forwards for my career,” added Morris.
Prior to his Caterham link, Seb Morris was a little known entity. However, receiving the backing of a Formula One team so early on in his career will be integral to his development. It will remove financial restraints and ensure that he stays on the right track, (pardon the pun.) In the dog-eat-dog world of motorsport, any assistance is valuable and we will most certainly be learning more about Morris in the future.
