Celis Jr slots into Force India’s test line-up

Date published: February 22 2017

Force India have revealed their line-up for the two pre-season tests with development driver Alfonso Celis Jr getting a run.

Sergio Perez will debut the VJM10 on the opening day of pre-season testing, February 27, before handing the car over to his new team-mate Esteban Ocon.

Both drivers, though, will be out of the car for Day Three with development driver Celis Jr having a turn.

Perez and Ocon will split the final day of the first outing, a day that has already been earmarked for wet weather testing with the Pirelli tyres.

Celis Jr won’t feature in the second four-day outing with Ocon and Perez sharing the driving duties.
