Caterham Racing confirms Rossi and Foresti for Barcelona
Malaysian team announce post season test line up
The Caterham Racing GP2 team has confirmed that it will be running Caterham F1 Team Test Driver Alexander Rossi at both official GP2 tests in Barcelona and Jerez on 30th/31st October and 21st/22nd November respectively. Alexander will be joined at the Barcelona test by World Series by Renault graduate Lucas Foresti who will drive the team’s second car at the Circuit de Catalunya. The team will confirm the second driver for the Jerez test in due course.
Alexander Rossi “It will be great to get back behind the wheel of the Caterham Racing GP2 car. I have already been working with the team at the new factory in Leafield where we ran through plans for the Barcelona and Jerez tests. Having raced at Barcelona just over a week ago in the final round of World Series by Renault, I’m very familiar with the circuit. I have experience with both Caterham Racing and the GP2 car from my outings with Caterham last year and look forward to working closely with the whole team again at the forthcoming tests.”
Lucas Foresti “It will be great to work with the Caterham Racing team in Barcelona and I’m excited about trying out a GP2 car for the first time at a track I already know well. I’ve seen how much progress Caterham Racing has made in its first two years and am looking forward to working with a team that has already won in Monaco, Barcelona and Singapore. I’m sure I’ll learn a lot from my time on track and I’ll do my best to help the team get through what is definitely going to be a busy program.”
Caterham Racing Team Manager Phill Spencer “We are all looking forward to the test next week and are delighted to have Alexander back with us. We are also looking forward to working with Lucas in his first GP2 test and hope we have a successful couple of days in Barcelona before we head to Jerez for our final outing of 2012.”
