Tatiana Calderon will enjoy her second taste of Formula 1 machinery this weekend at Fiorano after Sauber confirmed on Thursday she would be taking part in a two-day test at Fiorano.

Calderon became the first woman in four years to test an F1 car when she featured in a filming day with Sauber last month in Mexico, completing her first 100 km of running behind the team's 2018 C37 car.

Calderon will now continue her development with Sauber by taking part in a two-day test at Fiorano behind the wheel of the Sauber C32 car raced by the team in 2013.

"It is great to be behind the wheel of a Formula One car again so quickly after my debut last month where I drove the Sauber C37 at a Promotional Event in Mexico. This next step will be even more special, as I will complete two full days of testing in the Sauber C32-Ferrari," Calderon said.

"It will be exciting to gain further experience and to learn more about these cars. I look forward to continuing to work, develop, and improve together with the team. I want to thank the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team for giving me this opportunity and for believing in my capabilities."

Sauber team principal Frederic Vasseur added: "We are pleased to have Tatiana Calderón completing two days of testing at Fiorano. She impressed the team with her dedication, focus, and skills at a recent Promotional Event.

"We are convinced that Tatiana has what it takes to drive at the highest level and look forward to seeing her progress and gain more experience at the upcoming test."
