Schmidt Peterson Motorsports will test the Italian next month at Sebring.
Davide Valsecchi is one of multiple GP2 champions who just never got a shot in the big leagues of Formula One. He became a test driver for Lotus in 2013, but that never amounted to anything more.
The 27-year-old has been in limbo as of late, looking for his next break and doing very little racing in 2014. However, he may have just found his next ride in the form of an IndyCar.
Schmidt Peterson Motorsports will test with Valsecchi next month at Sebring as they look to replace an outgoing Simon Pagenaud and find a suitable teammate for James Hinchcliffe.
He's won seven races at the GP2 level and beat five F1 drivers to be (counting Nasr) when he captured the championship title in 2012. Luca Filippi was the only Italian racer who competed in IndyCar this past season and he too came from the GP2 ranks.
