American driver Conor Daly has secured a last-minute test with a GP2 team in Abu Dhabi next week after a long and difficult winter spent searching for a seat.

Daly enjoyed his best-ever season in GP3 in 2013, as he finished the championship in third place with one win and five further podiums to his name. Having also run in two GP2 races and the Indy 500, it was a busy 2013 for him.

However, come the end of the year, Daly was left with few options, openly talking about the situation as he searched for a seat in 2014. In an interview with eRacing Magazine, Daly said: “I was able to win all across the world last year, had the most successful season of my career and showed what I could do on every corner of the planet.

“Unfortunately that doesn’t do much for you anymore! I have to stay positive but it has been a massive struggle so far.”

Thankfully for Daly, some good news came through today that he shared with his Twitter followers:

Should a seat come to fruition, Daly would join compatriot Alexander Rossi in GP2 for this season as both drivers continue their charge for Formula 1.

GP2 acts as the direct support series to Formula 1, allowing drivers to get a taste of the grand prix experience by following the main series around for eleven rounds of the year.
