F2 Champion Bacheta tests for Williams

By on Friday, October 19, 2012

Recently crowned Formula 2 champion Luciano Bacheta has tested for Williams at Silverstone.

The British driver drove an FW33, which amassed five points in the 2011 season, at a soggy Silverstone.

"I've had a good mix of wet and dry running which has been a perfect way to learn how the car works and adapts. Just to be around a team like Williams is a special experience and I've gained so much from the day", he said.

"I'm still taking it all in and I am sure that it won't be until I go away and reflect that I'll realise quite how brilliant it was. The car is just a pleasure to drive, better than anything I've driven before, so I'd love to have some more experience of Formula One in the future."

Sir Frank Williams added that Bacheta has a promising career ahead of him.

"No doubt he learnt a lot from today’s experience and it will stand him in good stead for his future career which looks very promising indeed".

Bacheta is weighing up his options for 2013, which include Formula Renault 3.5 and GP2.
