Vettel tests for Porsche

Four-time Formula 1 World Champion Sebastian Vettel will be testing for Porsche Penske Motorsport.

The German will be a part of the 36-hour endurance test, that the German outfit will do at Motorland Aragon in Spain, as preparation for the 24 Hours of Le Mans.

It is however not determined yet, if he is going to race for the team, or if it’s only a test.

He has already done the first meters in the 963, since he did a short Rollout in Weissach, to check all systems. In addition to that, he has spend some hours in the simulator, to prepare for the upcoming test, and to get used to all the systems on the LMDh car.
