Dani Clos will run with the HRT team during the young driver test in Abu Dhabi, the Spanish squad said on Monday. The outing will be the second experience at the wheel of Formula 1 machinery for the Spaniard, who made his debut at the wheel of a Williams at Jerez in 2008.
Clos finished in ninth place in this year's GP2 championship. The 23-year old driver from Barcelona will also be racing in GP2 in Abu Dhabi this weekend.
"I feel very lucky to be driving a Formula 1 car again, like I did in 2008," said Clos. "It is a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to make it to an F1 test. I would like to thank the whole HRT team beforehand for putting their trust in me.
"I have worked very hard throughout my career and to see HRT put its faith in me is a great way of proving my worth. I am sure that the work we will put in will be beneficial for both parties.
"I want to thank everyone that backs me and trusts in me, especially the people who are closest to me, for having helped me into making this a reality."
