2011 F1 testing
Renault will test another Russian driver in the session for young drivers at Abu Dhabi next week.
Aleshin’s participation in the test is his prize for winning the Formula Renault 3.5 championship this year.
He drove an R29 in a demonstration run at Magny-Cours earlier this year.
D’Ambrosio, who has participated in Friday first practice for Virgin in the last three races, drives for Renault junior team DAMS in GP2. Renault described him as “this season’s most successful member of the Renault F1 Driver Programme.”
Because of laws restricting the advertising of alcohol in Abu Dhabi, the Flagman Vodka logos on the R30 will be replaced by those of the Bank of Moscow, its holding company, in the race and tests at the Yas Marina circuit.
