Stevens to drive at Silverstone test


Caterham has confirmed that test driver and Racing Academy member Will Stevens will drive the CT05 at the forthcoming Silverstone test.

Stevens is currently fourth in the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Series with 68 points, having won the opening race of the season in Monza and with two further podium finishes to his name.

In addition to his commitments in that championship he has also been playing a central role in the development of Caterham F1 team's driver-in-the-loop simulator at its Leafield Technical Centre. The simulator is now an integral part of the team's engineering toolbox and as well as helping to develop and fine-tune its technical capabilities, he has also been providing race weekend support in the cockpit in his role as the team's Test Driver.

"It'll be great to be back in an F1 car for the first time since the 2013 Silverstone test," said Stevens, "and with the amount of time I've already spent in the virtual car in the simulator, I can't wait to see how it compares to the real thing.

"I'm sure we'll have a busy runplan set for the day and my focus will be on doing the best job I can for the team, building on the work I've been doing all year in the sim at Leafield."
