Pascal Wehrlein has been cleared to run at this week’s second Formula 1 preseason test from Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, and thus make his official debut for Sauber F1 Team.

The German was held out of the first test with the lingering effects from his back injury suffered in an accident at the Race of Champions in January in Miami, and Ferrari reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi filled in.

Wehrlein will test on Tuesday for his first day in the car.
