Callum Ilott will take part in his second FP1 session of the 2021 season with Alfa Romeo at the Austrian Grand Prix in two weeks.
The 2020 Formula 2 runner-up was in the car during the first practice session in Portugal earlier this year.
Ilott’s FP1 outings come as part of his duties as the team’s reserve driver, a role he shares with Robert Kubica.
In Austria, he will stand in for Antonio Giovinazzi, as he did during the session in Portimao.
“The second FP1 of my season will be a good chance to help the team and build on the good job we did together in Portugal earlier this year,” Ilott said.
“Knowing the car and the team already will definitely help me get to work straight away and having the data from the first week of running means we will have a solid base to start with.
“I am looking forward to making the most of this opportunity as the team keeps getting stronger.”
Alfa Romeo team principal Frederic Vasseur added: “The way Callum has integrated with the team in a relatively short amount of time is remarkable, and to see him in the car with a solid set-up base from the previous week will be interesting.
“He’s done a good job in Portugal and the data he provided us with was really useful, so we are looking forward to another productive session together.”
Alfa Romeo has also confirmed that Kubica will receive an FP1 outing at the Styrian Grand Prix, one week prior to Ilott’s run.
