Alexander Rossi will be driving for Lotus at the post-Abu Dhabi Grand Prix test session, the Norfolk-based team has confirmed. The official announcement comes alongside a confirmation that the American will also contest the first ever GP2 Final for Tony Fernandes’ Team AirAsia.
“I am very excited to finally announce I will be competing in Abu Dhabi with Team AirAsia and will have the chance to put more F1 miles on my CV with Team Lotus,” says the 20-year-old Californian, who currently resides in Milton Keynes.
“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.
“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.”
