Tatiana Calderon is to continue with Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN in 2020 F1 season as the team’s test driver and also taking up the ambassadorial role.

It will be the fourth straight season that Calderon will remain with Alfa Romeo in F1 as she is named as the test driver and also a team ambassador. She joins Robert Kubica, who was named the reserve driver and is already driving the C39 at Barcelona.

Calderon joined the squad in 2017 and has not only tested the current machine but she also had a special test run in the 2012 Sauber car at Fiorano – Ferrari’s test track. No run plan has been announced yet but she will represent the team in world motorsport.

“I’m extremely happy to continue as a Test Driver and become Team Ambassador for Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN in 2020,” said Calderon, who was also present for the team launch at Barcelona earlier in the day alongside Kubica and regular drivers.

“Continuity is so important in our sport, we have been together four years and it has been a great journey which has provided me with some great opportunities to grow and learn. I’m very thankful to the team for their continued belief and support to my career.

“We are all ready to give our best this year.” At the same time, Alfa Romeo Racing team boss Frederic Vasseur added: “I am delighted Tatiana will stay with our team for 2020, taking over the role of Team Ambassador as well.

“Over the last three seasons, she has become a part of the family and her contribution to the team is increasingly valuable. She has been faultless every time she stepped in the cockpit and we are looking forward to working with her again.”

For 2020, Calderon is not racing in F2 but will make her sportscar full-time debut in European LeMans Series with Richard Mille outfit in the leading LMP2 class, where she will partner with female racers Katherine Legge and Sophia Floersch.
