Conor Daly will get another F1 outing this week

The versatile Conor Daly will have another Formula 1 test outing with the Sahara Force India F1 team, with the American set to complete a day of straight-line aerodynamic testing at Duxford Airfield on Wednesday.

It will be Daly’s third outing for the Silverstone-based team, after he performed two similar outings for the team last season.

"These sessions are vital data gathering times for Formula 1 teams and I’m glad to be able to assist," explained Daly. "Formula 1 cars are very complex machines and the day provides me with a great opportunity to learn many of the systems."

The 21-year-old – who is the son of former Grand Prix driver Derek Daly – will have a busy 2012 season. The youngster had a one-off GP2 Series outing with the Hilmer Motorsport team at Malaysia (finishing seventh in Sunday’s sprint race), before he commences a full-time season of GP3 competition with the ART Grand Prix team.

Additionally, he will attempt to make his IndyCar Series debut at next month’s Indianapolis 500 with the AJ Foyt Enterprises team, whose lead driver Takuma Sato won the previous race at Long Beach.
