Nasr test and reserve driver for Williams
Brazilian Felipe Nasr (21) made his Williams debut today in Bahrain, after being signed as the team’s 2014 test and reserve driver. Nasr will attend all Formula One events this season, as well as participating in three tests and five Free Practice sessions.
Nasr set the the fourth fastest time and completed 86 laps in the Mercedes-powered FW36. I’m really happy to be joining the Williams family. – he said – They have a great history in the sport and some of the greatest Brazilian drivers of all time have driven for the team, so it’s an honour to join names such as Piquet, Senna and Massa. This is a fantastic opportunity for me…
Last year Felipe claimed the fourth place in the GP2 Series, while in 2011 he won the British F3 title.
