Sainz Jr. to test for Red Bull in Abu Dhabi

F1 Young Driver Tests - Silverstone: Day Three

Carlos Sainz Jr. will drive for Red Bull at the post-Abu Dhabi Grand Prix test.

The Spaniard will get a single day of testing as a reward for winning this season’s Formula Renault 3.5 championship.

Sainz last tested for Red Bull at last year’s Young Driver Test at Silverstone and completed a demo run with the team earlier this season at the Nurburgring.

He will run the RB10 on the opening day of the test at the Yas Marina Circuit, before handing over the car to regular driver Daniel Ricciardo.

Sainz remains one of four drivers in the running for the remaining Toro Rosso seat alongside Max Verstappen.
