Danish Formula 2 racer Frederik Vesti will take to the wheel of the W13 for the first time at the post-season test in Abu Dhabi.
Mercedes will run Formula 2 racer Frederik Vesti in the W13, in what will be his debut in F1 machinery with the team at the Abu Dhabi post-season test.
Originally the test was going to be for Nyck de Vries, but as he is now racing for AlphaTauri in 2023 he will test with that team instead.
Vesti is Mercedes’ Junior driver currently competing in the Formula 2 championship, having also done some simulator work with the team at Brackley alongside De Vries and Stoffel Vandoorne.
With the latter also now leaving to join Aston Martin as their reserve driver in 2023, Vesti is the logical choice given his experience with the team.
“A childhood dream coming true! I will complete my first ever running in a Mercedes F1 car at the Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi,” said Vesti. “It’s an incredible sign of trust from Mercedes which I like to thank them for!”
Vesti currently sits in eighth in the F2 championship with two races left, having won the sprint race in Baku and achieved four podiums so far.
