Sauber has announced that Tatiana Calderon will get two full days of Formula 1 testing in the C32 car at Fiorano.

Calderon made her F1 debut after the Mexico GP when she drove the 2018 Sauber C37 during a filming day. After a successful run, the Swiss team has decided to give two full days of testing to the Colombian at Ferrari's Fiorano circuit.

She will drive the Ferrari-powered Sauber's C32 on November 17-18 as part of learning process. "It is great to be behind the wheel of a Formula One car again so quickly after my debut last month where I drove the Sauber C37 at a Promotional Event in Mexico.

"This next step will be even more special, as I will complete two full days of testing in the Sauber C32-Ferrari. It will be exciting to gain further experience and to learn more about these cars.

"I look forward to continuing to work, develop, and improve together with the team. I want to thank the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team for giving me this opportunity and for believing in my capabilities," said Calderon.

Team boss Frederic Vassuer added: "We are pleased to have Tatiana Calderón completing two days of testing at Fiorano. She impressed the team with her dedication, focus, and skills at a recent Promotional Event.

"We are convinced that Tatiana has what it takes to drive at the highest level and look forward to seeing her progress and gain more experience at the upcoming test." The test gives Calderon a massive opportunity in the bid to compete in F1.

  • Love to see a woman compete in F1. Never mind all the male pig chauvinist remarks that came before and I assume will follow.

    • It is a test, so whats the harm in someone testing?

    • Right, cause F1 is all about who's the strongest physically. That's why all F1 drivers are bodybuilders weighing 200 lbs.

      There are places where your comment makes some sense. In this particular case, you failed miserably.

    • It is a single person test in a old car, she is paying for it, so how is it a waste? Every driver does it, nothing new.

  • What a wast of resources.

    • She has the budget to get the test done, so how is it a waste?

    • Even if she have the budget, she still didn’t show any improvement in the junior category. Some one else deserve the test.
