Sauber reserve driver Raffaele Marciello will receive another practice outing with the squad at this weekend's British Grand Prix.

Marciello, 20, drove the C34-Ferrari during practice in Malaysia and Spain and has also participated in two test days for the squad.

The Ferrari junior will replace Marcus Ericsson for Friday's opening 90 minute practice session.

"In general I like fast tracks; Silverstone is one of my favourites," he said.

"The Becketts section particularly is always a challenge. I am pleased to again be driving the Sauber C34-Ferrari. It is the third time I will be driving the car in FP1 – after Malaysia and Spain.

"Together with my GP2 duties, I am looking forward to another busy race weekend."

Marciello will be joined on track by two other non-race drivers, with Jolyon Palmer (Lotus) and Susie Wolff (Williams) also set for practice runs.
