Williams test driver Roy Nissany will get his first run in the team’s FW43 during opening practice for this weekend’s Formula 1 Spanish Grand Prix.
Nissany joined Williams as a test driver back in January and his programme includes track time at three grands prix this year.
The 25-year-old previously got behind the wheel of Formula 1 machinery when he had an outing in its FW42 at last season’s post-race test in Abu Dhabi.
Nissany will replace George Russell in the opening practice session at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.
The Israeli holds 18th place in this year’s Formula 2 championship.
“I am very keen to get in the car in Barcelona,” said Nissany. “Driving an FP1 for the first time is a huge milestone for every driver, yet for me, it is also a national achievement to be carrying the Israeli flag.
“I have thoroughly been preparing for it with the team and I believe we can get great value out of it.”
Nissany will be the second member of Williams’ back-up contingent to test its FW43 after reserve Jack Aitken carried out practice running in Austria.
Williams also has Dan Ticktum and Jamie Chadwick on its young driver programme.
