Susie Wolff, Maldonado for Young Driver Test

Jul 15 2013, 6:42am CDT | by

Grove (England), July 15 (IANS) The Williams Formula 1 team Monday confirmed that it will run its Development Driver Susie Wolff and rising star Daniel Juncadella for the Young Driver Test at Silverstone Circuit on July 17-19.

Grove (England), July 15 — The Williams Formula 1 team Monday confirmed that it will run its Development Driver Susie Wolff and rising star Daniel Juncadella for the Young Driver Test at Silverstone Circuit on July 17-19.

Race driver Pastor Maldonado will also take part in the test to conduct tyre evaluation under the revised regulations announced following the German Grand Prix.

Susie has been part of the Williams since April 2012. She made her Formula 1 debut putting the FW33 through its paces at a Williams partner event at Silverstone last October and was given an increased programme in the team's simulator for 2013.

She was the first to get behind the wheel of this year's race car when she drove the FW35 at Idiada for aerodynamic testing in February.

Twenty-two years old Juncadella is currently racing in DTM, the German Touring Car series, for Mücke Motorsport having impressed in a number of single-seater categories over the last few years.

He was runner-up in the 2009 Formula BMW Europe series before going on to win the prestigious Macau Grand Prix in 2011 and become Formula 3 Euro Series Champion in 2012.

Following the recent regulation changes to the test, which now permit current F1 race drivers to take part in order to conduct tyre evaluations for Pirelli, Maldonado will also have a day behind the wheel. He will work on tyre development on one of the three scheduled test days, with Juncadella and Susie each having a day driving the Williams Renault FW35.

Mike Coughlan, Williams technical director, said: "It is great that we are able to give Susie the opportunity to have a full day behind the wheel following all the hard work and dedication she has put in both supporting us at the track and in the simulator."

"Daniel is a young talent who has had a great deal of success over the past few seasons and we're excited to give him the chance to see what he can do behind the wheel of a Formula One car. Given the recent test regulation changes, we will also now run Pastor to enable Pirelli to gain further data to continue their development programme."

Grosjean ne sait pas s’il restera chez Lotus

Pastor Maldonado a été reconduit par Lotus pour la saison 2015. Une annonce peu surprenante dans la mesure où son sponsor PDVSA est la première rentrée d’argent du team d'Enstone. De son côté, Romain Grosjean ne sait pas encore de quoi son avenir sera fait, alors que Lotus se séparera de Renault à la fin de l’année au profit d’un bloc Mercedes. "Je ne sais pas", a répondu le Français à Hockenheim, après les qu ...

Grosjean : "Le FRIC nous coûte cher..."

Les Lotus E22 ont été particulièrement pénalisées par la suppression des suspensions inter-connectées (dites "FRIC") exigée par la FIA pour ce Grand Prix d'Allemagne. Les ingénieurs d'Enstone avaient été précurseurs de ce système et exploitent depuis longtemps (2009) un équilibre harmonieux entre les trains avant et arrière grâce à ces suspensions. Du coup, Romain Grosjean et son équipier Pastor Maldonado ont régressé dans la hiérarchie, pointant au 17ème et 16è ...
