Mercedes-AMG confirms the test reserved for Romain Grosjean
The French driver will test the W10 on June 29 at Paul Ricard Circuit
After the cancellation of the Turkish Grand Prix, the Formula 1 racing calendar was reworked and the French Grand Prix was moved to June 27th. This change threatened to prevent the driver Romain Grosjean from testing the Mercedes-AMG W10, as he was already due to participate in the race valid for the IndyCar championship on the Road America circuit on 20 June.
After the accident at last year's Bahrain Grand Prix, Toto Wolff had promised the French racer that he would have him try the 2019 world champion car as soon as he was able to do so. Ultimately the test will take place at the Paul Ricard circuit on 29 June, two days after the French Grand Prix.
Grosjean currently participates in the IndyCar championship with the Dallara of the Dale Coyne Racing team and has obtained the pole position in the Indianapolis race. At the moment there is no prospect for him to actually return to Formula 1, but it will be interesting to evaluate his performance in a car like the 2019 W10.
