The Caterham F1 Team has confirmed that Test Driver and Caterham Racing Academy member Will Stevens will drive the team's 2014 CT05 F1 car on July 8th at the Silverstone F1 test, taking place after the British Grand Prix. The Silverstone session is the third of four in-season tests in 2014 and runs from July 8-9th. Stevens made his debut in an F1 car at last year's young driver test at the Northamptonshire track.
"It is a great opportunity for me to get my second taste of a Formula 1 car back at Silverstone with The Caterham F1 team," says Stevens. "We have been working very hard on the sim this year at Leafield so it's a test I feel really well prepared for. The focus for 2014 remains on FR3.5 and after the last round at Spa, we’ve made good progress to keep us right up there. We head to Moscow ahead of the F1 test so a lot to look forward to in the coming weeks."
With victory in the opening round and a further two podiums, Strakka Racing's Formula Renault 3.5 Series driver is currently fourth in the 2014 standings with 68 points.
