Felipe Drugovich, an Aston Martin F1 junior driver and reserve driver, will participate in the FP1 session at the Monza circuit, where he won the 2022 Formula 2 title. He has previous experience driving the AMR23 as a substitute for Lance Stroll during pre-season testing. Drugovich is excited to get back behind the wheel and see how the car has improved since then. He has been developing the car in the simulator and looks forward to comparing it to the real thing. Drugovich has done extensive testing as part of Aston Martin’s program under F1’s TPC rules and has significant sponsorship backing, potentially making him a contender for the 2024 driver market. Aston Martin is pleased to provide this opportunity to Drugovich and is confident in his abilities. This FP1 outing at Monza is happening during the second ATA weekend experiment of the year, where teams have a reduced set of tyre sets to improve sustainability and increase race tyre strategy variance.
