Williams select Aitken and Nissany for end-of-season young driver test

Williams select Aitken and Nissany for end-of-season young driver test

Williams has confirmed reserve driver Jack Aitken and test driver Roy Nissany will take part in the post-season Abu Dhabi test at the Yas Marina circuit.

For Aitken, it will be the 25-year-old's second outing in the FW43 this season after previously taking part in the first practice session for the Styrian Grand Prix.

Nissany has enjoyed two FP1 runs in the Spanish and Italian GP, and ahead of the young driver test will take part in a third prior to the Bahrain GP.

This year the young driver test replaces the traditional end-of-season tyre test, and will run for one day on Tuesday, December 15. It is solely for drivers who have not started more than two grands prix.

Aitken and Nissany, who have both been competing in F2 this year, will each spend a day behind the wheel as the team will run two cars.

Aitken said: “Of course I’m delighted to be able to step back into the FW43 in Abu Dhabi.

"After my FP1 outing with the team earlier in the year, I’ll be looking to build upon my experience with the team and get some ever-welcome laps under my belt.

"Although we won’t be able to test too much with the way the programme is set, there are always things to learn, and it will be a great way to finish the season.”

Nissany added: “The Abu Dhabi test is another great opportunity for me to develop my connection with the car. In contrast to an FP1, the test gives us much more time and miles to fine tune and synergise the car and my driving.”
