Many Haileyburians will be aware of Callum Ilott (BF 12) and the great strides he has been making in the motor racing field. We are delighted now to learn that he will be making his Formula 1 test debut in Barcelona next week!

Callum, who currently competes in Formula 2, joined Ferrari as a junior in 2017 and last year finished third in GP3 before moving up. He will be behind the wheel for Alfa Romeo on Tuesday (14th May).

He joins three other of his fellow countrymen in Formula 1 this season, including five-time world champion Lewis Hamilton. OHs will be interested to note that Callum's path mirrors that of Mick Schumacher who, as a member of Ferrari's young driver programme, tested for Ferrari and Alfa Romeo earlier this year in Bahrain.

We'd like to wish Callum the very best of luck on his debut; may this success be the first of many for this talented OH!
