Frijns gets another Friday drive

Tuesday 01-July-2014 14:46

Robin Frijns will get another chance to impress when he drives for Caterham in practice at Silverstone.

The Dutchman had a Free Practice outing at the Bahrain Grand Prix earlier this year and he will get behind the wheel of Kamui Kobayashi's CT05 during Friday's opening session of the British GP.

"I'm back in the 2014 car for the first time since Bahrain and excited about getting back in the cockpit and helping us make some progress again, and seeing how the car has developed since early April," he said.

"I was in our 2010 car a couple of weeks ago at the City Racing event in Kazan, Russia, and that was cool, but the real work is in the current season car in an official session and that's what Friday morning is all about."

The Leafield team were widely expected to make the step up to midfield this year, but they have struggled.

"The last few races have obviously been pretty tough for the team, but we clearly made some progress in Austria and we think we can do the same again at Silverstone, a track where we should see more from the setups we ran on Saturday and Sunday at the Red Bull Ring, "Frijns added.

"Hopefully the weather will be good, not something that you can ever guarantee in England, but with us being able to use two sets of tyres in FP1 sunshine will help us get the most out of the session, for me and the whole team."
