WILLIAMS will give Oliver Rowland another chance to impress next month after the rising star passed his first test with flying colours.

The 25-year-old, who is the Grove-based team’s junior driver, will spend a day behind the wheel at the Hungaroring.

It will form part of the two-day test following the Hungarian Grand Prix, on July 29.

Rowland, who finished third in Formula 2 last year, got his first taste of Formula 1 at the post-Spanish Grand Prix test last month, clocking up 121 laps.

He said: “It’s another step in the right direction of achieving my goal of being in F1.

“Everything went very well at the test in Barcelona and it’s nice to know they’re giving me another chance and have trust in me.”

He added: “We need a bit of work at the moment to get the team’s performance back to where we should be.”

The Williams team head to Canada this weekend bottom of the constructors’ championship, having scored just four points from six races.
