Correa first sat behind the wheel of a Formula 1 carAugust 25, 2019
The Alfa Romeo team continues private tests in Le Castell, and today Juan Manuel Correa sat behind the wheel of a 2013 Sauber C32.
For a 20-year-old American of Ecuadorian descent, speaking in Formula 2 in 2019, this is the first experience of piloting such a powerful technique.
“This is an unforgettable feeling … Juan Manuel first got behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car!” Commented a team from Hinwil on her Twitter page.
As the head of Alfa Romeo Frederic Wasser recently recalled: “Our team is proud that it has a rich history of preparing young talented riders for more complex tasks.”
Correa has an official development driver status, i.e. in fact, the trainee of the team, and gaining experience in piloting a Formula 1 car, although the previous generation with a naturally-aspirated 2.4-liter Ferrari V8 engine, will certainly be a useful experience for him.
Yesterday, a Colombian racer Tatyana Calderon worked at the C32 wheel in Paul Ricard, but the team did not provide any detailed information about the results of the test day.
