Calderon said: “I have been able to expand and develop my skills as a race driver and am convinced I will be doing so throughout this year.”

Team principal Frederic Vasseur said: “Tatiana is very hard-working, and has impressed the team with her focus and dedication. She has made good progress as a driver, developing both her mental and physical capacities continuously over the past few years.”
