Palmer to get five further FP1 outings

Briton Jolyon Palmer will drive for Lotus in first practice for the upcoming five European Formula 1 races.

GP2 champion Palmer has already driven for the team in China, Bahrain and Spain, but will get further outings in Austria, Britain, Belgium, Hungary and Italy.

Palmer will also take part in the post-race test in Austria.

"I'm really looking forward to driving the E23 again in FP1 and then at the in-season test in Austria especially after not having been in the cockpit these past couple of races," he said.

"The pace of the car looked very strong in Montreal so the car has come on quite well since the last in-season testing I did in Barcelona.

"It'll be good for me to do some more mileage and be in a more competitive car since the last time I drove it."
