Canamasas test confirmed

GP2 Series driver, and Caterham Racing Academy member, Sergio Canamasas will conduct an aero test on behalf of the F1 squad this week.
Rumours that GP2 Series driver Sergio Canamasas was due to step into an F1 car have been confirmed by the Caterham organisation.

The mercurial Spaniard, who races for the EQ8 Caterham Racing offshoot of the Caterham F1 operation, has been called up to conduct a straight-line aero test with the senior squad in France this Thursday [20 June], getting behind the wheel of an F1 car for the first time.

“Taking part in the aero test with the F1 team is another step in my development and it's good to have the chance to help the team continue the progress they've made so far this year,” Canamasas confirmed, “I'm going to the factory at Leafield before the test for a seat-fit and to go through the detailed run-plan for the day with the engineers. With no GP2 activity until Silverstone at the end of June, I can fully focus on my F1 work for the next few weeks.”

The day will see the Spaniard, who is a recent addition to Caterham's Racing Academy scheme, will be behind the wheel of the current CT03 in what will be one of the Leafield team's official 2013 aero tests.

“The current regulations allow us to run a number of aero tests each season that give us the chance to run through aerodynamic development programs away from the time constraints of an F1 race weekend,” technical director Mark Smith clarified, “Sergio will be in the car for us at the test we will run on 20 June and he will help us run through a very busy day of track work, helping us to continue to develop and giving him another level of exposure to the F1 environment in which he is aiming to compete in the future.”

Ive been following him in GP2 and he is a hazard. On multiple occasions he has punted other drivers off the track. I really don't feel that he should be given a chance like this as he is way too reckless, if he calms down, sure, but where he stands right now, no way
