Daly back testing with Sahara Force India
About week before he climbs into a GP3 car for the opening rounds of the season in Barcelona, May 10-12th, American Conor Daly will spend Wednesday, May 1st doing aero testing in Sahara Force India's 2013 F1 car. The test will take place at Duxford Airfield in Cambridgeshire, England. Formula One testing has resumed at the Imperial War Museum facility having been suspended since Marussia test driver, Maria de Villota suffered serious injuries in a crash while testing there in July 2012.

Daly will have a new seat made at the Sahara Force India factory on Monday prior to a simulator session on Tuesday.

"These sessions are vital data gathering times for F1 teams and I'm glad to be able to assist. F1 cars are very complex machines and the day provides me with a great opportunity to learn many of the systems," said Daly.

This will be Daly's third F1 test session having taken part in two last season. Sahara Force India is keen to complete this first aero session before the start of the European season in Spain. Formula One teams are allowed to do four aero test sessions during the season.
