Kovalainen handed Spa practice run

By

Heikki Kovalainen will return to Formula 1 action at the Belgian Grand Prix as he takes part in first free practice for the Caterham team.

The Finn, who raced for the team until the end of last season, will take over Charles Pic’s car for the Friday morning session. Despite being dropped by Caterham at the end of last year, the Finn has kept close contacts with it, and drove for the team in FP1 in Bahrain and Spain to give it feedback on the 2013 car.

Kovalainen will also run in first free practice at the Italian Grand Prix in place of Giedo van der Garde.
