Nicholas Latifi will return to Formula 1 action this weekend, replacing Esteban Ocon for the opening practice session in Germany.

The Formula 2 driver will resume his duties with Force India, taking part in his second practice outing for this season following on from his Canadian GP showing.

“Montreal was fantastic, it’s a day I’ll never forget, so I’m really looking forward to getting back in the car for a second FP1 outing at Hockenheim,” Latifi said on his official website.

“Unlike Montreal, Hockenheim is a track I have driven before, and because I’m a bit more used to the car now, I’m feeling relaxed and more comfortable and confident.

“The goal is to do a good job for the team and get the data they need. I want to push along the programme for them as much as possible and build my own experience at the wheel of a Formula 1 car.”

The F1 action comes thick and fast for the Canadian with Force India announcing he will also test for the team on Day One of the post-Hungarian GP test.
