Marussia to run Ellinas and Gonzalez at Silverstone test 08 Jul 2013

Tio Ellinas (CYP) Marussia Manor Racing finished third in race 2. GP3 Series, Rd3, Valencia, Spain, 22-24 June 2012.

GP3 Series leader Tio Ellinas will get his first proper F1 outing next week when he drives for Marussia on day one of the young driver test at Silverstone in the UK. Ellinas, 21, previously completed a straight-line test for the team last month.

The Greek-Cypriot driver earned his slot at the test thanks to being Marussia Manor Racing’s most successful driver in GP3 last season.

For the final two days of the three-day test on July 17-19, Marussia will field their reserve driver Rodolfo Gonzalez. The Venezuelan has so far driven in Friday practice sessions for the team at three Grands Prix this year.
