Yelloly to test with Force India in Spain


After making his GP2 Series debut at the Circuit de Catalunya this weekend, Nick Yelloly will make his Formula 1 testing bow with the Sahara Force India team on Wednesday.

Twenty-four-year-old Yelloly has been intensely involved in working with the Force India team in their simulator this year, with the former GP3 Series race winner getting his first taste of track action in a F1 car in the post-Spanish Grand Prix test.

The Hilmer Motorsport GP2 driver will take over the car on Wednesday, with Mercedes reserve driver Pascal Wehrlein taking the reigns of the VJM08 on Tuesday.

Wehrlein will be doing double duty in Spain, with the German also testing for his Mercedes-AMG PETRONAS employers on Wednesday where he will take over the car that Nico Rosberg will drive on Tuesday.
