GP2's Fabio Leimer will be driving the Sauber C30-Ferrari at the upcoming Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi. The test days in Abu Dhabi are meant for drivers who have competed in no more than two Formula 1 races.
At Yas Marina, Leimer will join Sauber test driver Esteban Gutiérrez, with the Swiss driving for one full day whereas the Mexican will be on-track for two of the three days on offer.
"When I found out that I will definitely take part in the Formula 1 test, I realised for the first time what this actually means," Leimer comments. "Being a racing driver, of course, you always dream of Formula 1; that this dream is now coming true is almost unbelievable.
"On top of that, not many Swiss drivers have ever had the chance to test for the Sauber F1 Team. For this reason it is an even more special honour for me to be able to get my first laps in an F1 car under my belt as a Swiss for the Swiss team.
“I am very much looking forward to that challenge and want to take this opportunity to thank everyone who has made it possible.”
