GP Week : Issue 65
FIVE-time World Rally Champion Sebastien Loeb is set to make his GP2 testing debut at the championship's forthcoming test session at Jerez, Spain, next week, in order to further prepare for his expected Formula 1 debut for Toro Rosso at the 2009 Abu Dhabi Grand Prix. Rumours, reported first in French newspaper Le Parisien, said that Loeb was present at the GP2 Series 2009 finale at Portimao last weekend, where he underwent a seat fitting at the DPR team. GPWeek understands that the rumours are in fact correct, and that Loeb will make his testing debut for DPR in Jerez when the GP2 Series conducts its three-day post-season test in Spain between October 6-8. "It's more than a rumour," a GP2 paddock source told GPWeek. "He was in Portimao to do a seat fitting at DPR. He is good friends with one of the team's engineers, Pascal Tortosa. "Although it is yet to be officially confirmed by the team I understand he is due to test for DPR for two days at Jerez." The GP2 Series will mark the official opening of the Abu Dhabi Yas Marina circuit with a GP2 Asia series test before the Grand Prix weekend. GPWeek understands that some F1 drivers, including Loeb, could use this test as an opportunity to learn the new circuit. Loeb already has some miles in an F1 car, testing for Red Bull Racing late last year, pictured.
