Youngest American racing driver Alexander Rossi will join Team Lotus for upcoming test at Abu Dhabi.
He had made his F1 first appearance with BMW Sauber in 2009 during testing, will also be racing in the Abu Dhabi GP2 event with Caterham Team AirAsia. Alexander Rossi took third place in this year’s Formula Renault 3.5 series, also becoming the top rookie with two victories and six podiums.
“I am very excited to finally announce I will be competing in Abu Dhabi with Caterham Team AirAsia and will have the chance to put more F1 miles on my CV with Team Lotus,” said Rossi. After the positive GP2 tests in Jerez and Barcelona I feel we have a good chance of a strong result in the GP2 races and I will definitely be going into the weekend fully focused and motivated for a race win – looking at the team’s past results I see no reason why we can’t achieve that.
“For the F1 test I will be looking to learn as much as possible, do the best job I can and soak up every minute, in and out of the car.”
