Alpine-backed youngster Olli Caldwell is set for his maiden Formula 1 test at British Grand Prix venue Silverstone on Wednesday.
Caldwell joined Alpine’s roster of juniors for 2022 off the back of finishing eighth in last year’s Formula 3 championship.
He stepped up to Formula 2 with Campos this year but has yet to finish inside the points.
Alpine has been carrying out an extensive programme with its 2021-spec A521 this year for reserve driver Oscar Piastri.
Piastri has already tested at the Circuit of the Americas, Losail and Spielberg, and today (Tuesday) is driving the car at Silverstone.
Caldwell, 20, is due to take over test duties on Wednesday for his first taste of Formula 1 machinery.
It comes after Caldwell’s fellow Alpine-backed Formula 2 racer, Jack Doohan, had his maiden Formula 1 test outing in Losail last month.
