Johnny Cecotto Junior will test for Sahara Force India at the upcoming young driver test in Abu Dhabi next week, completing the team’s line-up alongside Max Chilton.

The 22-year-old Venezuelan will get behind the wheel of the VJM04 on Wednesday 16 November for a full day of work with the team. The test will be Johnny’s debut in a Formula 1 car.

Johnny Cecotto Jr: “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. I know there’s a massive amount to learn and a lot of work to get through on the day, but I definitely feel ready to get behind the wheel. I hope I can do a good job and repay the faith the team have shown by giving me a chance in the car.”
