The Polish driver was originally set to pilot the ByKolles ENSO CLM P1/01 NISMO in the FIA World Endurance Championship but pulled out just days before the season-opener at Silverstone.

This left him without an immediate drive, but this test could suggest something with the Russian-backed team is on the cards for the future.

Mikhail Aleshin, Sergey Sirotkin and Victor Shaytar are currently expected in the team’s Dallara for next month’s 24 Hours of Le Mans.

The team is planning to join the European Le Mans Series field beginning at the Red Bull Ring round in July.
