Turvey to test with McLaren

McLaren confirms that Oliver Turvey will test during the young driver session at Jerez
McLaren has confirmed that it will run young British driver Oliver Turvey during the F1 young driver test at Jerez this week.

The 22-year-old will get the chance to sample the MP4-24 as his prize drive for winning the 2006 McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver of the Year award, with the test coming ahead of the youngster's move into GP2 next season

“I've gone over this moment so many times in my mind, so it's very exciting to be getting this opportunity to test with the Vodafone McLaren Mercedes team at Jerez this week,” he said. “My aim is to enjoy the experience, but also to learn as much as I can from it. If possible, I'd also like to be able to help the team with their preparations for the 2010 season.”

McLaren team principal Martin Whitmarsh said he was sure that the test would be beneficial to Turvey as he seeks to move up the motorsport ladder.

“We're extremely proud of our commitment to young talent and the efforts we've made to ensure the McLaren Autosport BRDC Young Driver winners are given the experience of a lifetime when they test with us,” he said.

“A drive in a race-wining Formula 1 car is every racing driver's dream, and I'm sure Oliver will use this week's test as the perfect opportunity to broaden his experience as he continues his successful single-seater career.”
