For the third time during the 2015 Formula 1 season, Ferrari Driver Academy driver Raffaele Marciello will participate in opening practice, with the young Italian getting back into his Ferrari-powered Sauber C34 at Silverstone.

Marciello, who will also compete in the supporting GP2 Series with the Trident team this weekend, is looking forward to the continuing his role as official test and reserve driver for the Sauber team, and admits that Silverstone is one of his favourite tracks to drive.

“I am looking forward to another FP1 session,” revealed Marciello. “In general I like fast tracks; Silverstone is one of my favourites. The Becketts section particularly is always a challenge.

“I am pleased to again be driving the Sauber C34-Ferrari. It is the third time I will be driving the car in FP1 – after Malaysia and Spain.

“Together with my GP2 duties, I am looking forward to another busy race weekend.”

Marciello will take the place of regular driver Marcus Ericsson for FP1, before the Swede takes over for the rest of the weekend from FP2.
