NEWS STORY

Toro Rosso will field a total of five drivers at the upcoming Young Driver Test at Silverstone including Daniel Ricciardo, who is also scheduled to drive the Red Bull.

On Wednesday, Johnny Cecotto will spend all day at the wheel of the STR8. The Venezuelan is currently competing in GP2 with Arden International and has already driven for Scuderia Toro Rosso at last year’s Abu Dhabi Young Driver Test.

On Thursday morning, it’s the turn of Carlos Sainz Jr. The 19 year old Spaniard, son of multiple World Rally Champion Carlos Sainz, is an obvious choice for the Toro Rosso team for a couple of reasons: firstly he is part of the Red Bull Young Driver Programme, as was the current driver line-up and he is also backed by CEPSA, the Spanish fuel and lubricants company that is a sponsor of the Faenza team.

Currently competing in GP3, the Spanish youngster is also getting a run with Red Bull this week. In the afternoon, Daniel Ricciardo will be in the cockpit and the Australian is also due to test for Infiniti Red Bull Racing on Wednesday.

Friday morning sees Jean-Eric Vergne get his turn, before handing over to Daniil Kvyat for the afternoon session. The 19 year old Russian is another member of the Red Bull Young Driver Programme, currently competing in GP3.
