This is F1Minute - Lotus and Toro Rosso add to Abu Dhabi Young Driver lineup.
A few more teams have added their roster of young driver names to the upcoming test in Abu Dhabi. Lotus have previously confirmed Nicolas Prost, who is scheduled for the first day at the Yas Marina circuit. He will also be joined by Davide Valsecchi, the 2012 GP2 champion and Edoardo Mortara, who has been driving in the DTM series.
Caterham have also announced their lineup, with familiar faces Giedo van der Garde and Alexander Rossi getting behind the wheel at Abu Dhabi. Both drivers have previously been out on track on Friday practice sessions this season.
Meanwhile, Toro Rosso have Luiz Razia onboard for the test, he’s been doing the rounds with a few teams over the past few seasons, and was second in the GP2 championship this year. He’ll be joined by German driver Johnny Cecotto Jr, who has less credits to his name - finishing ninth in the GP2 series.
Finally, as we’re talking about new faces, Max Chilton will make his F1 debut in Abu Dhabi Friday practice, after his signing with Marussia last month.
