Palmer i Goddard będą testowali dla Force India

Zespół Force India poinformował, że w trakcie posezonowych testów w Abu Dhabi za kółkiem VJM07 pojawi się dwóch młodych kierowców Jolyon Palmer i Spike Goddard. Pierwszy z nich to zwycięzca tegorocznej serii GP2, drugi to kierowca europejskiej serii F3. Każdy z wymienionych kierowców będzie miał do dyspozycji pełny dzień testowy, a pierwszy z tej możliwości skorzysta Palmer.

Dr Vijay Mallya, Team Principal & Managing Director: “I’m pleased that we can conclude our season by giving two promising youngsters their first taste of Formula One. As a team we have a strong track record of identifying up-and-coming prospects and giving them valuable mileage and experience in our cars. I have been following Jolyon’s progress this season in GP2 and he is clearly a big talent that deserves a chance in Formula One. Spike has also worked hard to get this chance and it’s the perfect opportunity to showcase his skills. I wish Jolyon and Spike all the best for a successful couple of days in Abu Dhabi.”

Jolyon Palmer: “Sahara Force India has shown their faith in me by offering this opportunity and I am looking forward to repaying their trust in Abu Dhabi. I have worked very hard for a chance like this and I want to help the team get the most from this test session. This is a team that has always promoted talent and I hope this opportunity can lead to bigger things in the future.”

Spike Goddard: “I would like to thank Sahara Force India for this incredible opportunity. Every young racing driver dreams to be at the wheel of a Formula One car and I am very excited to be one of the very few who gets to fulfil this dream. The test is an important stage in the preparations for 2015 and I hope my contribution will be useful for the team to get a head start for next season.”
