Formula 1: Callum Ilott joins Alfa Romeo as second reserve driver

Ilott will share reserve driver duties with Robert Kubica when the Pole is unavailable as a result of his commitments in other racing categories. Alfa Romeo team boss Frederic Vasseur said Ilott, 22, was “one of the most talented coming through the ranks”. Ilott, runner-up to new Haas F1 driver Mick Schumacher in Formula 2 in 2020, is also Ferrari’s test driver this year and is racing a Ferrari 488 GT3 in the GT World Challenge Europe Endurance Cup. Ilott said: “The two (test) sessions I had with the team in the last two years have been extremely useful in getting me accustomed to the way a Formula 1 team works and I am confident I can hit the ground running in my new role as one of the reserve drivers at Alfa Romeo Racing.
