Force India reserve driver Daniel Juncadella will receive his third official practice outing with the squad at this weekend's Brazilian Grand Prix.

Juncadella took part in practice at Silverstone and received 30 minutes of running ahead of the Italian Grand Prix.

The Spaniard will replace Sergio Perez in the opening practice session at Interlagos.

"I'm very happy to be given another chance to drive the car this weekend in Brazil," said Juncadella.

"I feel confident after my outings in Silverstone and Italy and I look forward to continue gaining more experience with the team. The Brazilian track brings back good memories, as I achieved two podium finishes back in 2008 when I raced here at the final two races of the Formula BMW American season, but I can't wait to go back and see what it's like to drive it in an F1 car!

"The fact that I know the track and that I'm not new to the team anymore will definitely be two positive elements that will allow me to focus on my driving and on doing the best job possible for the team straight away.

"After finishing my DTM season much stronger than we started it, I now look forward to my third FP1 outing and I'd like to thank Force India for this opportunity."
