Tatiana Calderon has completed her latest Formula 1 test with Sauber at the Fiorano Circuit, with the team praising her “excellent” performance.
The Colombian GP3 racer drove a 2013 Ferrari-powered V8 Sauber C32 during the two-day test at the Italian circuit.
It followed Calderon’s first laps behind the wheel of Sauber's 2018 challenger, as she took part in a filming day with the Swiss squad at the Autodromo Hermanos Rodriquez after last month’s Mexican Grand Prix.
The Sauber development driver turned in 202 laps - the equivalent of 594.890km - across the two days at Fiorano and set a best lap time of 58.802s on Sunday as she focused on qualifying and race simulations.
Sauber said Calderon “delivered an excellent performance” and managed “consistent lap times while demonstrating dedication and endurance."
“It was another interesting day of testing,” Calderon added.
“We focused on qualifying simulations in the morning, and long-runs in the afternoon.
“Overall, the past two days have been very beneficial to my development and I have gained valuable experience.
“The team did a great job in the preparation as well as the implementation of my programme and I felt comfortable in the car as well as on the track.
“I look forward to putting what I have learned to practice.”
Calderon is understood to be chasing a move up to Formula 2 for the 2019 season.
