Gene Haas has announced that Pietro Fittipaldi will take part in the pre-season testing in Bahrain.

After Nikita Mazepin’s contract has been terminated, Haas are looking for a replacement. Antonio Giovinazzi, Oscar Piastri, Jehan Daruvala, and Fittipaldi are among the candidates. Haas has revealed that though the decision regarding the race seat is yet to be made, Fittipaldi will drive the VF-22 car at the pre-season testing in Bahrain.

“We’re in the process of looking at several candidates, we’ll see who is available and what we have to deal with, but we’ll have somebody by Wednesday,” he told Associated Press.

“Pietro will definitely be in it, that’s what he’s for, he’s the test driver.”
