Coletti, who was born in Monaco on 6 April 1989, has competed in the GP2 Asia and GP2 Main series this year, although his race season was cut short after an accident at the Spa-Francorchamps GP2 meeting. He was back in the cockpit for October’s GP2 test at Barcelona, topping the time sheet at the end of the final day.

Ceccon from Italy, was born on 24 September 1993 and this year he won the Under-21 category of the Auto GP Championship before going on to take the overall title in the same series. He also drove in the GP2 Main series, the youngest driver ever to do so. Both men will be taking part in the Abu Dhabi GP2 race prior to the test.

Toro Rosso is well used to training young drivers

Franz Tost

Franz Tost: “Scuderia Toro Rosso is well used to training young drivers and we are pleased to add Coletti and Ceccon to the list of students who have been through the Scuderia Toro Rosso school. Neither of them is part of the Red Bull Young Driver Programme, which is down to the fact that those drivers currently on the programme are still too young and inexperienced to deal with a Formula 1 car.”

Test Schedule:
Tuesday, 15 November - Coletti
Wednesday, 16 November - Ceccon
Thursday, 17 November - Coletti in morning, Ceccon in afternoon
