Alfa Romeo line up Calderon and Correa for F1 test


Alfa Romeo Racing will entrust a 2013-spec C32 to test driver Tatiana Calderon and development driver Juan Manuel Correa this weekend at the Circuit Paul Ricard.

Correa, a 20-year-old American competing in this year's FIA Formula 2 championship with Sauber Junior Team Charous, will enjoy his first outing in an F1 car.

Caledron has already undergone two successful F1 tests in the past twelve months including a run in Alfa's 2018 C37.

"Our team has a proud history of nurturing young talent and we take this part of our mission very seriously," said Alfa Romeo team principal Frédéric Vasseur.

"Both Juan Manuel and Tatiana have proven to be valuable members of our team, working with us at the factory and trackside, and this opportunity in the car will help them progress even further in their understanding of Formula One and in building their relationship with the engineers and crew."


Tatiana Calderón, Test Driver: "I’m really thankful to Alfa Romeo Racing for giving me another opportunity to drive a Formula One car, following my previous two runs last year.

"I’m very happy to be able to work with the team on the track once again and continue to learn and develop further as a driver. I look forward to making the most from this new experience."


Juan Manuel Correa, Development Driver: "Driving a Formula One car is something I have dreamt about since I was seven years old, so I am extremely excited to finally be in the cockpit.

"I am looking forward to learning as much as possible from this experience. Thank you to Alfa Romeo Racing for this opportunity."
