Johnny Cecotto Jr completes Force India's young driver test line-up

Johnny Cecotto JrJohnny Cecotto Jr will make his Formula 1 testing debut with Force India in next week's young driver test in Abu Dhabi.

The 22-year-old Venezuelan, son of 1980s F1 racer Johnny Cecotto, will drive on the Wednesday of the test, with fellow GP2 driver Max Chilton in the car on Tuesday and Thursday.

"I think all drivers want to race in Formula 1 so the chance to get time in the Sahara Force India F1 car is a big moment for me," said Cecotto.

"In fact, I can't stop smiling at the thought of driving such an amazing car. I know there's a massive amount to learn and a lot of work to get through on the day, but I definitely feel ready to get behind the wheel.

"I hope I can do a good job and repay the faith the team have shown by giving me a chance in the car."

Cecotto has raced in GP2 since 2009. Driving for Ocean this season, he did not manage any points finishes.
