Coletti, Ceccon get Toro Rosso test chance

GP2 drivers Stefano Coletti and Kevin Ceccon will take part in the Abu Dhabi Young Driver test for Scuderia Toro Rosso.

Both drivers will also compete in the GP2 race supporting the Grand Prix, before getting a day and a half each in the F1 car.

Monaco-born Coletti won two GP2 races this year but didn’t finish the season after a crash in Spa, although he was fastest on the final day of the recent Barcelona test.

Italian Ceccon, who only turned 18 in September, will be one of the youngest drivers ever to take part in a official F1 test session.

Team boss Franz Tost said: “Scuderia Toro Rosso is well used to training young drivers and we are pleased to add Coletti and Ceccon to the list of students who have been through the Scuderia Toro Rosso school.

“Neither of them is part of the Red Bull Young Driver Programme, which is down to the fact that those drivers currently on the programme are still too young and inexperienced to deal with a Formula 1 car.”
