Louis Delétraz, the Swiss racing driver sponsored by FCA regulated FX brokerage ADSS, has announced he will have his first run in an F1 car at the post Abu Dhabi Grand Prix testing session, on the 28th November 2018.
Louis Delétraz will test the current-spec Haas VF-18 on the second day of the three-day session, which is run by tyre supplier Pirelli. Commenting on the opportunity Delétraz said:
I’m naturally very excited to make my Formula One debut testing in Abu Dhabi and I am grateful to both Gene Haas and Guenther Steiner for giving me the opportunity to test with Haas F1 Team.
A winner of the Formula Renault 2.0’s Northern European Cup, as well as runner-up in the two-litre Eurocup series and the Renault 3.5ltr series, Louis Delétraz has been sponsored by ADSS for more than 5 years. The Abu Dhabi based investment firm has supported Louis from his karting days through to his current F2 drive with the Charouz Racing System team.
The 21-year-old, who was formerly part of Renault’s young driver programme is already a two-time podium finisher in the 2018 FIA Formula 2 Championship and is looking for a strong finish to the season finale at the Yas Marina circuit, in Abu Dhabi.
Philippe Ghanem, ADSS CEO, commented:
From the first time we met Louis we knew he had the talent, dedication and the desire to become an F1 driver. He has successfully moved through the formulas and has now reached the pinnacle of racing, sitting in a current Grand Prix car. We are confident that he will eventually be racing in this premier formula.
To further support Louis, the ADSS’s brand will be on the side of the Haas cars as they run in the final race of the year at Yas Marina on Sunday 25th November 2018.
The Abu Dhabi Grand Prix has established itself as a high-point in the season. At ADSS we have always supported F1 and the combination of leading edge technology, speed, skill and commitment fit closely with the approach we bring to our global investment and financial services business. We are very proud that we will have our Abu Dhabi based brand and our sponsored driver all featuring at this wonderful occasion.
