Racing Point simulator driver Nick Yelloly will drive for the team in the post-Spanish Grand Prix test at the Circuit de Catalunya.
He will run on both days of the two-day test, fulfilling Racing Point’s obligation under the rules to give two days’ testing to a driver who has not competed in more than two F1 races.
“Testing the car will next week will further aid my abilities to develop both simulator and car moving forwards as it did in 2015,” said Yelloly.
“As I do so much work in the simulator at Racing Point it’s always a huge benefit to drive and feel the car in real life, so Tuesday cannot come soon enough.”
The 28-year-old previously raced in Formula Renault 3.5, finishing fifth in 2012. He went on to compete in the Porsche Supercup and finished second in the F1-supporting series last year, scoring three wins.
