Lotus test and reserve driver Fairuz Fauzy will be back behind the wheel of the T127 this on Friday morning at Hockenheim.

The Malaysian backed team announced before Silverstone that Fauzy would get further Friday outings in Britain, Hungary, Singapore and Abu Dhabi.

And although Fauzy was not initially down to drive for Lotus in Germany, the team added the date to the Malaysian driver's roster because of the mechanical issues that struck at Silverstone.

"It's an exciting day for all of us at Lotus - being able to tell Fairuz he has another Friday run a week before he thought he'd be back in the car," said team boss Tony Fernandes.
