Esteban Ocon will get another outing in the Renault RS.16 during first free practice for the British Grand Prix, it has been confirmed.

The Frenchman, who is contracted to Mercedes but is currently being loaned to Renault as its reserve driver, made his F1 race weekend debut during the Spanish Grand Prix but completed only a handful of laps after hitting technical issues.

Though he went on to drive the car during testing at the Circuit de Catalunya, Ocon will get another race weekend outing this weekend by participating in FP1 at Silverstone. Renault has also revealed GP2 driver Sergey Sirotkin will participate alongside Jolyon Palmer at the upcoming Silverstone test.
