Minardi has re-signed 24 year old Italian Matteo Bobbi as a test driver for a third year.
Bobbi is the second driver on the squad's test team for this season, alongside Russian Sergey Zlobin. The team has said that the Italian will take part in a number of the new Friday morning test sessions at F1 races this year.
"He is a talented individual, who has worked with us now for the past two years," said team boss Paul Stoddart. "In that time, he has built up an excellent rapport with the team, and we look forward to continuing our relationship with him."
Bobbi said: "I am both pleased and honoured that Minardi has once again asked me to assist with the test programme for its new chassis. I believe from speaking with the engineers that the PS03 has great potential, and I am looking forward to helping them achieve the maximum from the car."
