Williams has confirmed that its development driver Roy Nissany will make his second Formula 1 free practice appearance this weekend at Monza.
The Italian Grand Prix is the host of the eighth round of the 2020 F1 World Championship, which will be the first of three rounds in the southern European country this year.
Nissany made his FP1 debut in Barcelona three weeks ago, stepping in for George Russell and ending the session in 20th position.
The Israeli driver will once again take over Russell’s seat this Friday as he gains more experience behind the wheel of an F1 car.
Nissany has competed at Monza before in the junior racing categories, winning a race at the track during the 2016 Formula V8 3.5 Series.
“After the great session in Barcelona I am really looking forward to driving at Monza,” Nissany said.
“This legendary track is one of my favourites, as it is where I had my first single seater win.
“I’m sure it will be emotional, but as always, I will switch on my robot mode to ensure I will be fully focused on completing my job for the team.
“This FP1 session, I will have more experience, greater confidence and I feel even better than before, ahead of jumping in the car.
“Of course, we will do more preparations in the simulator at the factory this week following Spa. I am keen to get in the car and release that clutch lever.”
Nissany will also be racing F2 this weekend, as he has done throughout 2020. Last time out in Belgium, Nissany secured reverse-grid pole position for the Sprint Race before his race ended following a crash with fellow Williams-affiliated driver Dan Ticktum.
