Williams Martini Racing is pleased to confirm the team’s Official Young Driver, Oliver Rowland, will drive at next month’s in-season test in Hungary, alongside Williams’ Reserve & Development Driver, Robert Kubica.

Oliver tested with the team for the first time earlier this year when he drove the FW41 on Day 1 of the Barcelona in-season test, before handing over to Robert on Day 2.

Oliver will drive on Day 1 of the two-day test at the Hungaroring, which immediately follows July’s Hungarian Grand Prix, on 31 July – 1 August, before Robert takes over on Day 2.

“It’s another step in the right direction of achieving my goal of being in F1″ commented Oliver. “Everything went very well at the test in Barcelona and it’s nice to know they’re giving me another chance and have trust in me.

“I’m aware that you don’t get many opportunities to show your talent in F1. It’s a pretty exclusive club so I tried to do a good job. The test went well, and I tried to be mature about my approach. Feedback and consistency was the aim rather than worrying about lap times straight away, but we got the times down pretty quickly. We need a bit of work at the moment to get the team’s performance back to where we should be, so, rather than trying to be a hero, it was important to give the engineers exactly what they wanted.”

“I’m just delighted to have the opportunity again. It was a dream come true for me in Barcelona and I would like to thank Williams Martini Racing and my team at Blackcastle Sport for giving me this second chance. I will continue to do my very best to help push our performance in the right direction.”
