Adderly Fong will make his Formula 1 practice debut during Friday's first session at the Abu Dhabi Grand Prix.

Fong recently sampled the Sauber C31 during a private test session in Valencia but will take to the Yas Marina Circuit on Friday afternoon in the C33.

"I am very excited about my Formula One debut in Abu Dhabi, but also at the same time a little bit nervous," he said.

"Last month I drove the Sauber C31 for the first time in Valencia, and it was good to get the mileage to be able to familiarise myself with the speed of a Formula One car.

"Obviously the C33 is a bit different, as it is a new generation car with a 1.6-litre V6 turbocharged engine. It will be interesting to see how the ERS and the brake-by-wire systems work.

"As I will have only 90 minutes in FP1, I will not have a lot of time to get used to the car. However, being able to drive during a Formula One weekend is a great privilege, and I am very happy to have the opportunity. It is good that I already know the track as at the same time here last year I did a GP3 race."
