Sean Gelael gets four F1 FP1 outings with Toro Rosso in 2017

 

Indonesian Formula 2 driver Sean Gelael will drive in Friday Formula 1 FP1 sessions for Toro Rosso at the Singapore, Malaysia, USA and Mexico Grands Prix this season.

The Faenza team has yet to decide which of its two race drivers will be replaced at each event.

The 20-year-old Gelael, who currently lies 20th in the F2 championship, has already driven the STR12 at this year's post-race Bahrain and Budapest test sessions.

"During the tests in Bahrain and Budapest Sean performed very well, helping the team in a very professional way, with a mature approach to the complex task of providing engineers with useful feedback," said team boss Franz Tost.

"Everyone within the team was impressed by his performance, his technical understanding and his commitment."

Gelael added: "I will use the opportunity to absorb like a sponge everything I can and learn as much as possible.

"I hope I can do a good job for Scuderia Toro Rosso and provide the team with good data from these important first sessions."
