Pierre Gasly to test for Toro Rosso at Barcelona


Scuderia Toro Rosso teased a potential driver announcement earlier Wednesday on April 1, and has followed through on the announcement later this afternoon.

Red Bull junior driver Pierre Gasly, who will be with DAMS in the upcoming GP2 Series season, will have a day’s worth of running in STR’s STR10 at the post-Spanish Grand Prix weekend test in Barcelona next month.

It will mark Gasly’s first day of running in the new chassis, which is currently driven by rookies Max Verstappen and Carlos Sainz Jr., both of whom scored points in last week’s Malaysian Grand Prix.
