Second Sauber run for Tatiana Calderon

Tatiana Calderon will return to the cockpit of the Sauber C32 when she tests at the Fiorano circuit this weekend.

Calderon, the team’s test driver, had her first taste of Formula 1 machinery last month when she put in the laps in the C37 during a filming day at the Mexican Autodrom.

Following on from that, she has now been handed a second run at the Fiorano circuit.

The GP3 driver will drive a 2013 Sauber C32 at Ferrari’s test arena on Saturday and Sunday.

“It is great to be behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car again so quickly after my debut earlier this month,” Calderon said. “This next step will be even more special.

“It will be exciting to gain further experience and to learn more about these cars. I look forward to continuing to work, develop, and improve together with the team.”

Sauber team principal Frederic Vasseur added: “We are pleased to have Tatiana Calderon completing two days of testing at Fiorano.

“She impressed the team with her dedication, focus, and skills at a recent promotional event.

“We are convinced that Tatiana has what it takes to drive at the highest level and look forward to seeing her progress and gain more experience at the upcoming test.”
