is preparing for his Formula 1 debut as a racing driver next season. The 18-year old driver has taken a race seat at the Swiss Sauber
Formula 1 team, with the team preparing for his debut.
The Russian driver manages a busy schedule since the contracts were signed. Currently racing for ISR in the World Series championship, Sirotkin is also fitness training to adapt for the physically demanding power of a Formula 1 car.
Sources told F1Today.net that Sirotkin has completed a two-day test with Sauber at the Italian circuit of Vairano. His test began a constructive programme to get familiar with the power and behavior of a Formula 1 car on a circuit which is often used by Sauber for shakedowns and straight line tests.
This weekend Sirotkin will be in Paul Ricard to race in the World Series by Renault
. Next week he should be in action again for Sauber to test the C30 in Italy.
