Patrese to test for Honda.

Riccardo Patrese will get a taste of a modern Formula 1 car this week courtesy of the Honda Racing F1 Team.

Patrese, who raced in 256 Grand's Prix from 1977 to 1993, will return to the driving seat on Tuesday September 9 when he takes the wheel of last year's Honda RA107 race car at the Jerez circuit in southern Spain.

The Honda Racing F1 Team extended the invitation of a guest drive following the Italian's contribution to the celebrations for Rubens Barrichello's 257th Grand Prix earlier this year.

At the 2008 Turkish Grand Prix, Barrichello broke Riccardo's long-standing 15 year record to become the most experienced F1 driver of all time.

Whilst taking part in a celebratory golf tournament, Patrese mentioned that he would love to try out a Honda F1 car, and the team were delighted to give him this opportunity.

During his 17-year Formula 1 career, Patrese achieved six wins, 37 podiums, eight pole positions and 13 fastest laps during his 256 race starts.

He now commentates for Italian broadcaster Sky Sports Italia's Formula 1 coverage.
