Lotus to test Teixeira at Barcelona

Ricardo TeixeiraRicardo Teixeira will drive the Lotus T128 during the second day of testing at Barcelona this afternoon.

The 28-year-old Portuguese-born Angolan sampled the Lotus for the first time two weeks ago, driving during the team's filming day at Valencia following the conclusion of the opening pre-season test.

He is scheduled to be in the car for 30 laps today as part of his ongoing evaluation for a test driver role.

Heikki Kovalainen has started the day behind the wheel of the T128 and is due to be back in the car after Teixeira's run to complete a race distance at the end of the day.

Teixeira raced in Formula 2 in 2010, GP2 in 2009 and spent four seasons in British Formula 3 prior to that.
