Caterham have announced that academy member Will Stevens will drive the team's CT05 at next month's Siverstone test.

Currently fourth in the 2014 Formula Renault 3.5 Series, Stevens has impressed with three podium finishes which included the victory at the opening race of the season in Monza.

The 22-year-old, who has worked extensively on developing Caterham's simulator, has already had a taste of Formula 1 having taken part in last year's Silverstone test.

"It'll be great to be back in an F1 car for the first time since the 2013 Silverstone test and with the amount of time I've already spent in the virtual car in the simulator, I can't wait to see how it compares to the real thing," he said.

"I'm sure we'll have a busy runplan set for the day and my focus will be on doing the best job I can for the team, building on the work I've been doing all year in the sim at Leafield."
