Venezuelan Johnny Cecotto Junior has been selected by Force India at next week’s Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi, alongside Max Chilton, who was confirmed by the team earlier this week.

The 22-year-old will have his first experience of driving a Formula 1 car on Wednesday, whilst Chilton is in the car for Tuesday and Thursday.

“I think all drivers want to race in Formula 1 so the chance to get time in the Sahara Force India F1 car is a big moment for me,” said Cecotto. “In fact, I can't stop smiling at the thought of driving such an amazing car.

“I know there's a massive amount to learn and a lot of work to get through on the day, but I definitely feel ready to get behind the wheel. I hope I can do a good job and repay the faith the team have shown by giving me a chance in the car.”
