Formula Renault 3.5 racer Will Stevens will test for Caterham at the post-British Grand Prix test at Silverstone next month.
Stevens, a part of the Caterham Racing Academy, currently lies fourth in the Formula Renault 3.5 championship, with a win in Monza and two further podium finishes already to his name this season.
The 22-year-old had his first taste of Formula One machinery at last year’s Silverstone Young Driver Test, when he tested the 2013 Caterham.
Alongside his Formula Renault campaign with Strakka Racing, Stevens has also played a central role in the development of Caterham’s simulator at the team’s Leafield base.
“It’ll be great to be back in an F1 car for the first time since the 2013 Silverstone test and with the amount of time I’ve already spent in the virtual car in the simulator, I can’t wait to see how it compares to the real thing,” said Stevens.
“I’m sure we’ll have a busy run plan set for the day and my focus will be on doing the best job I can for the team.”
