Chilton gets Abu Dhabi outing

Max Chilton will drive for Marussia in Free Practice one in Abu Dhabi.

The British racer took part in the young driver test at Silverstone for the team and was appointed as their reserve driver ahead of the Singapore Grand Prix.

"I feel very proud to be entrusted with this opportunity by the Marussia F1 Team. As part of the Young Driver Programme this year I got to know the Team very well, but over the last two race weekends, as Reserve Driver, I feel like I have a proper role and have learned so much about the Formula 1 environment in a very short space of time", said Chilton.

"As for next Friday, the 90 minutes of FP1 will fly by so quickly that it’s a real bonus to be testing the car at a circuit I know well. It means I can get up to speed straight away and focus on delivering some proper set-up and aero evaluation data for the Team to help during the rest of the weekend", said the GP2 race winner, who will then hand over to Charles Pic for the remainder of the weekend.
