Abu Dhabi: Johnny Cecotto Junior will be testing for India's Formula One Sahara Force India team at the upcoming young driver test in Abu Dhabi next week.
The 22-year-old Venezuelan, whose father and namesake competed in Formula One in the 1980s, will get behind the wheel of the VJM04, Wednesday at the Yas Marina circuit, as will Max Chilton. The test will be Johnny's debut in a Formula 1 car.
"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. In fact, I can't stop smiling at the thought of driving such an amazing car," he said in a statement.
