Mazepin gets tyre test run with Force India
23 November 2017 – Nikita Mazepin will return to Formula 1 test action with Force India during next week's post-race tyre running at the Yas Marina Circuit.
Formula 1 teams will stay on at the venue for two days of running next Tuesday and Wednesday, each supplying one car, in order to aid Pirelli's development of its 2018 rubber.
Mazepin will pilot the VJM10 on Tuesday, before regular racers Sergio Pérez and Esteban Ocon take over to share Wednesday's running.
The 18-year-old previously tested for Force India at Silverstone last year, and again in Hungary this season.
Mazepin finished 10th in this year's European Formula 3 Championship, his second season in the category, taking a trio of podiums in the process.
