Team Lotus have today confirmed that Rodolfo Gonzalez will join Alexander Rossi and Luiz Razia for the Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi this week.

Gonzalez, who didn’t actually score a single point in this year’s GP2 championship, will be in the car tomorrow. Razia will follow on Wednesday and Rossi brings the test to a close on Thursday.

Riad Asmat, Team Lotus Group CEO, explained why Gonzalez completes the driver line-up for this test: “We worked with Rodolfo last year at the same test and he performed well for us in the step up to F1. With Rodolfo, Alexander and Luiz we have three talented up and coming drivers who will be keen to learn as much as possible, as well as show us they have the pace and temperament to succeed in Formula One.”

Gonzalez, understandably, is quite happy to be selected. “I am really pleased to be back with Team Lotus again in Abu Dhabi,” said the Venezuelan. “Last year I learned a lot in the time I had with the team, and another year on I am sure I can keep developing on and off track with this opportunity.”
