Ferrari have announced that they will have four drivers taking part in the Formula 1 test at the Barcelona-Catalunya circuit, on 14 and 15 May, following the forthcoming Spanish Grand Prix weekend.

Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow will have two cars on track, with one of the SF90s being used for the Pirelli tyre test. On the Tuesday, Charles Leclerc will drive for Ferrari, while Sebastian Vettel will be working for the sport’s sole tyre supplier. On Wednesday, Charles will drive for Pirelli, while at the wheel of the SF90 for the Scuderia will be Antonio Fuoco. The former Ferrari Driver Academy (FDA) student is currently one of four drivers working in the Ferrari simulator.

This will be Antonio’s third test for the Scuderia, following on from a session at Spielberg in 2015 and at this Barcelona venue in 2016. To date, the Italian has covered 856 kilometres at the wheel of a Ferrari. This will be a useful opportunity for Fuoco to drive on a track again, at a time when circuit testing is extremely limited.

FDA driver Callum Ilott will also be testing, at the wheel of the Alfa Romeo on Tuesday. The English youngster is currently racing in Formula 2 and this test will be his very first drive in a Formula 1 car.
