GP3 driver Conor Daly is to carry out a straight-line aero test for Force India on Thursday.

Daly is the son of former Tyrrell and Williams driver Derek Daly, and is driving for Lotus GP in GP3 this season. He won the sprint race in Barcelona last weekend to currently sit second in the championship standings, but will switch to a Formula One car for the first time this week to complete the test at Cotswold Airport in Gloucestershire.

In preparation, Daly visited the Force India headquarters on Tuesday to carry out a seat fitting and familiarise himself with the functions on the steering wheel. He also carried out some work with his engineering team while running through various procedures.

The team confirmed on its official website that the test would be to confirm results gained in the wind tunnel: "The focus is to measure aerodynamic forces to correlate with wind tunnel data."
