Sirotkin set for second FP1 run of 2016 in Brazil

Renault development driver Sergey Sirotkin will take part in the first free practice session of the Brazilian Grand Prix weekend at Interlagos, Motorsport.com has learned.

Sirotkin, who currently sits fourth in the GP2 standings in his second year in the series, is expected to be driving Kevin Magnussen's Renault RS16 in FP1.

Brazil will mark Sirotkin's second FP1 participation of the season, as he had also replaced Magnussen in first practice for this year's Russian Grand Prix in Sochi.

Renault had also given four FP1 sessions earlier in 2016 to current Manor driver Esteban Ocon, with Magnussen and Jolyon Palmer giving up two sessions each.
