Date published: May 8 2019

Ferrari announce their testing line-up for the in-season test in Barcelona.

Ferrari have announced their driver line-up for the test which follows the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The test sessions will run from 14-15 May, and on the first day Ferrari’s senior duo of Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc will both be on track.

Leclerc will be testing for the Scuderia, while Vettel will be instead testing for tyre manufacturer Pirelli, though he will still be driving the SF90.

On the second day it will be Leclerc’s turn to gather data for Pirelli, whilst Antonio Fuoco will take over testing duty for Ferrari – it will be his third Formula 1 test.

However, a current simulator driver for the team, it will be Fuocco’s first testing action in Formula 1 since Barcelona in 2016. The Ferrari Academy member has most recently served as test and reserve driver for the Dragon Formula E team.

British racer Callum Ilott will get his first taste of Formula 1 machinery with Alfa Romeo on the opening day.

The 19-year-old has had a difficult start to life in Formula 2, failing to score a point in his opening four races for the Sauber Junior Team by Charouz.
