Rossi and Stevens to test for Caterham
Rossi with the 2013 Caterham
Caterham F1 Team Reserve Driver Alexander Rossi and his fellow Caterham Racing Academy driver Will Stevens will be behind the wheel of CT03 for days one and two respectively of the forthcoming Silverstone Young Driver Test. Race drivers Giedo van der Garde and Charles Pic are then planned to take over driving duties on day three to take advantage of the chance to run on the Pirelli tires due to be tested at Silverstone.

The Silverstone Young Driver Test is a chance for Alexander Rossi to continue to build his 2013 F1 experience after the successful FP1 session he ran in Canada in early June and will be the first time Will Stevens, currently fourth in the Formula Renault 3.5 championship standings, will drive an F1 car.

Alexander Rossi: "Silverstone will be the second time this year I’ve driven the 2013 F1 car and it’ll be good to be back in the cockpit on a track I know very well. We have a busy workload ahead of us and I’m pleased I can both add this as another step in my development as an F1 driver, and help the team continue the push for the second half of the F1 season."

Will Stevens: "Since the announcement was made about me joining the Caterham Racing Academy I’ve settled in quickly with the F1 team and they’ve made every effort to help me prepare fully for my first run in a F1 car on day two of the test. I spent quite a bit of time last week in the simulator so I’m comfortable with most of the systems I’ll be working with and, while obviously nothing can really prepare you for the first time you drive an F1 car, I’m as ready as I can be."
