Trio to test Pirelli wet tyres


Although pre-season testing only gets underway in February, Ferrari, Red Bull and McLaren will be in action later this month in a two-day wet Pirelli test.

Formula 1’s tyre manufacturer announced on Monday that the three teams would be in action at the Paul Ricard circuit on January 25 and 26.

The trio will test Pirelli’s full wet tyres but won’t run the intermediates.

Pirelli revealed that “different wet prototypes will be tested” over the two days.

Ferrari, Red Bull and McLaren have yet to announce which drivers will be on hand for the test.

Pre-season testing gets underway at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on February 22nd.
