D'Ambrosio to replace Di Grassi on Fridays

Sunday 19th September 2010, 21:18  

Belgian GP2 driver Jérôme d'Ambrosio will replace Lucas di Grassi in four of the next ten Friday practice sessions this season.

He broke the news to Belgian TV channel RTBF in an exclusive interview, however the news is yet to be confirmed by the Virgin outfit.

D'Ambrosio currently drives for the DAMS team in GP2 alongside Ho-Pin Tung, both of which are test and reserve drivers for the Renault F1 team.

The opportunity to test for Virgin in Singapore, Japan, Korea and Brazil likely comes as he is rumoured to replace Di Grassi for the 2011 season, partnering Timo Glock.
