Frijns gets three-day GP2 test with Trident
22 February 2013 – Robin Frijns will test for Trident Racing at the Circuito de Jerez next week, with the Sauber reserve driver being handed three-days of running by the Italian squad.
The reigning Formula Renault 3.5 Champion previously explained to GPUpdate.net that a GP2 drive alongside his Sauber commitments would be 'the most logical step' this season, but financial backing has always been a thorn in the Dutchman's side.
"It's only a test, but hopefully it will lead to more," Frijns told GPUpdate.net on Friday. "I'll just have to do my best and hopefully that will be good enough. Hopefully a few more sponsors will come along and then we can do a year in the GP2 Series."
Trident is yet to announce either of its two drivers for the upcoming GP2 campaign.
