Sauber said the Fiorano test will be “will represent an excellent opportunity for Tatiana to advance in her learning process and development”.

“It is great to be behind the wheel of a Formula 1 car again so quickly after my debut earlier this month,” Calderon said.

“This next step will be even more special, as I will complete two full days of testing in the Sauber C32-Ferrari.

“It will be exciting to gain further experience and to learn more about these cars. I look forward to continuing to work, develop, and improve together with the team.”

Sauber team principal Frederic Vasseur added: “We are pleased to have Tatiana Calderon completing two days of testing at Fiorano. She impressed the team with her dedication, focus, and skills at a recent promotional event.

“We are convinced that Tatiana has what it takes to drive at the highest level and look forward to seeing her progress and gain more experience at the upcoming test.”
