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."

Lotus s’attend à conserver Grosjean

Oct 22 2014 5:41am CDT | Source: f1i.com

Lotus devrait selon toute logique aligner le même duo de pilotes pour la saison 2015 de Formule 1, selon son copropriétaire Gérard Lopez. Si Romain Grosjean est contractuellement libre de quitter son écurie, il devrait rester chez Lotus – qui sera motorisée par Mercedes l’an prochain – une année de plus aux côtés de Pastor Maldonado. "Je ne m’attends pas à ce qu’il y ait des changements", confie Lopez à Autosport. "Romain a une clause de performance qui l’autorise à quitter l ...

La grille de départ de ce tout premier Grand Prix de Russie de l’histoire de la Formule 1 diffère quelque peu du verdict qui s’est dessiné au terme de la séance qualificative. Quatre pilotes ont écopé d’un recul de cinq places à Sotchi. Kevin Magnussen, Nico Hülkenberg et Max Chilton ont tous les trois dû changer de boîte de vitesses. Dans le cas de Pastor Maldonado, il devait purger le reste de sa pénalité moteur qu’il av ...

La grille de départ du Grand Prix du Japon diffère quelque peu du verdict des qualifications, qui ont eu lieu ce samedi après-midi sur le circuit de Suzuka. En effet, compte tenu des pénalités moteur infligées à Jean-Eric Vergne et Pastor Maldonado, l’ordre de départ est pour le moins chamboulé. Renault a dû monter un sixième moteur thermique sur la Toro Rosso du Français et la Lotus du Vénézuélien, qui ont tous deux écopé d’un recul de dix places. Découvrez les girlf ...
