Nathanael Berthon to test with HRT in Abu Dhabi
HRT has announced that French driver Nathanael Berthon has been added to its driver line-up for the Abu Dhabi Young Driver Test.

Berthon, who competed in the GP2 event at Yas Marina over the course of the weekend with Racing Engineering, will be at the wheel of the Spanish team's F111 on both Wednesday and Thursday in what will be his first experience of F1 machinery.

“I'm pleased to have the chance to drive in this test for HRT as this will be my first real contact with a Formula 1 car,” he said. “Without a doubt, this will be an experience that will reinforce my motivation for the future, and will help me to learn and understand better all the technology of an F1 car and how the tyres react in different situations.

“Formula 1 is what every driver aspires to reach but for me this is another step in my preparation for the future and my long-term objective; I'm just taking this as an experience. My target is to continue working and build my career step by step, and this test is just one more of those small but invaluable steps.”

Berthon has previously raced in Formula Renault, the Renault World Series and GP2 Asia.
