Vips to test Red Bull RB18 in Spain FP1


Juri Vips will take part in FP1 at the Spanish Grand Prix with Red Bull Racing.

The Estonian has been part of Red Bull’s young driver academy for four years, gaining his FIA Super License in November 2020.

Currently, Vips sits eighth in the FIA Formula 2 championship after six races with a highest finish of second at the Saudi Arabian sprint race.

Alongside his F2 duties this weekend at the Circuit de Barcelona Catalunya, the 21-year-old will take part in the first Formula 1 practice session of the weekend with Red Bull Racing, the first of his F1 career.

With the squad still evaluating their driver line-ups at both Red Bull and Scuderia AlphaTauri, Vips’ involvement with the team could swing their opinions in his favor as he looks to break into F1.
