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."

Maldonado espère continuer à faire équipe avec Grosjean

Aug 13 2014 9:30am CDT | Source: f1i.com

Pastor Maldonado souhaite conserver le même équipier chez Lotus l’an prochain. Le pilote vénézuélien a déjà été reconduit pour 2015, alors que Romain Grosjean reste pour l’heure indécis sur son futur. "Il est difficile de dire ce que l’équipe doit faire, d’avoir une réelle opinion à propos de mon équipier", commente Maldonado. "Romain est un bon pilote, cela ne fait aucun doute. Il l’a montré par le passé et, selon moi, il n’y a aucune raison d ...

Pastor Maldonado affirme ne pas regretter sa décision, prise à la fin de l’année dernière, de quitter Williams pour Lotus. Son ancienne écurie enchaîne pourtant les bons résultats cette saison, avec trois podiums lors des quatre derniers Grands Prix, alors que Lotus est pour l’heure incapable de se battre pour un top 10. "Je suis plus épanoui à présent, insiste le Vénézuélien. Je ne suis pas en train de dire que je ne me sentais ...

Comme tout le monde en cette période de trêve, Romain Grosjean a l'esprit tourné vers l'avenir. La fin de saison s'annonce difficile pour le Lotus F1 Team dont la E22 n'est ni compétitive, ni très fiable. Pastor Maldonado a déjà été confirmé par l'écurie pour 2015, au contraire de son équipier, ce qui laisse toutes les options ouvertes à ce stade de sa carrière, y compris en env ...

JEV reste serein

Jean-Éric Vergne n’a pas connu une première moitié de saison de tout repos, mais il est parti sur une note positive avant la trêve estivale avec sa très belle prestation lors du dernier Grand Prix de Hongrie. La fiabilité de sa Toro Rosso STR9 a souvent posé problème. JEV a en effet été contraint à l’abandon à cinq reprises : défaillance du turbo en Malaisie, des échappements en Espagne et à Monac ...

Romain Grosjean a peu tourné cet après-midi au Hungaroring (14 tours contre 40 pour son équipier) suite à un problème mécanique survenu sur sa Lotus. "Notre voiture semble raisonnablement compétitive sur ce circuit même si nous avons manqué une partie importante de la deuxième séance d’essais libres à cause d’un problème au niveau du système de refroidissement", déclare le Français, auteur du 17ème temps du jour.
