Sergey Sirotkin has had a seat-fitting at Sauber as the team considers promoting him to their race line-up for 2014.

Some F1 drivers have expressed doubt over whether Sirotkin, who turns 18 next week, is experienced enough to race in F1. “I wasn’t ready at 18,” said Lewis Hamilton, “and I was pretty good at 18″.

Sirotkin is tipped to perform a demonstration run for Sauber in Sochi next month. The city is set to host the first Russian Grand Prix next year.
