Calado joins Force India regulars for YTD


Force India will run up and coming GP2 racer James Calado at this week's Silverstone test alongside Paul di Resta and Adrian Sutil.

Calado has already driven the VJM06 during straight-line aero testing, but the Silverstone test will allow the 24 year-old to complete further mileage in a Formula One car. He will share driving duties with di Resta and Sutil across the three days.

"We are pleased to give James the opportunity to test with us at Silverstone," said Dr Vijay Mallya. "As a graduate of the Racing Steps Foundation, his talent and determination have brought him to our attention and this is the ideal occasion to evaluate him further. The priority this week is to give the team a better understanding of the new Pirelli tyres due to be introduced next week in Budapest."
