Driver’s line-up for mid-season F1 Young Driver Test at Silverstone



Three teams electing to take part in the post-British GP test, Williams, Marussia, and HRT.

The Williams F1 team decided to run with its test driver Valtteri Bottas for all days of Silverstone.

Hispania Racing Team chooses first F1 opportunity to Chinese driver Ma Qing Hua.

(Marussia) Marussia Carlin GP2’s Max Chilton and Rio Haryanto are our ‘chosen ones’ for this week’s Young Driver Test at Silverstone.

Marussia Carlin GP2 drivers Max Chilton and Rio Haryanto are the Marussia F1 Team’s ‘young pretenders’ for this week’s Formula 1 Young Driver Test at Silverstone Circuit on 12 and 13 July.

Max and Rio are already part of our Young Driver Programme and both have received Formula 1 seat time previously, Rio having driven for the team for half a day at the Abu Dhabi test back in 2010. Having performed well in GP2 this year, in keeping with the objective of our Programme we are keen to provide them with valuable time in the car in order to further evaluate their potential to progress to the highest level of motorsport competition.

They will each receive one whole day of testing time in the 2012 MR-01 car, split across the two day schedule. On Day One, which takes place on the Grand Prix Circuit, Max will drive the car in the morning and Rio for the afternoon. The action then switches to the International Circuit for Day Two, when Rio will commence the day’s running, before handing the reins back to Max in the afternoon.
