Giorgio Mondini will test for the Hispania Racing team at Barcelona on Sunday, the Spanish squad said. The Swiss driver will run with the team in the afternoon, when he takes over from Indian Narain Karthikeyan at the wheel of the squad's 2010 car.
The 30-year-old Mondini had made his F1 debut back in 2005, when he tested a Renault R25 as a reward for winning the Formula Renault V6 series. He was the third driver for the MF1 Racing team back in 2006, when Hispania boss Colin Kolles was in charge of the squad. He also raced for Audi in the Le Mans 24 Hours in 2009.
Hispania, who is yet to announce its second racing driver, tested Tonio Liuzzi today.
