Williams F1 test driver Roy Nissany will take to the track this Friday at this weekend’s Spanish Grand Prix.

This will be the Israeli’s first drive on the track at a Grand Prix weekend following last year’s runs for the team. Nissany took part in three practice sessions during the 2020 season for the British team.

The FIA Formula 2 DAMS driver, will replace George Russell at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

“I’m very keen to get back in the car. Barcelona was my first FP1 session last year and we have made a lot of progress since then, so I’m looking forward to demonstrating that on track. It feels great to experience the steps of development each time I jump in the car.”

Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance spoke ahead of the weekend about the track and the F2 driver. 

“The Circuit De Barcelona-Catalunya offers a good mixture of corner speeds and some exciting elevation changes that combine to make it a useful test of a car’s all-round performance. The reprofiled T10 will provide a new challenge this year to an otherwise familiar circuit.”

“Roy has done a very good job each time he has driven the car and we are looking forward to getting his input this weekend. George will then take over driving duties for FP2.”
