Seven drivers confirmed for Ferrari test

As revealed on RaceFans last week, Ferrari will run a 2018 chassis at Fiorano this week to give Sainz his first outing in one of their cars. Sainz will drive on Wednesday and Thursday.

The team will also use the opportunity to give his team mate Charles Leclerc some extra pre-season seat time on Tuesday, and extend a testing opportunity to five of its junior drivers.

Two Ferrari Driver Academy members, Giuliano Alesi and Marcus Armstrong, will have their first taste of F1 machinery. The pair will drive on Monday and share the car with a third FDA member, Robert Shwartzman.

Mick Schumacher, who will make his F1 debut for Haas this year, will have his latest Ferrari test on Thursday. Callum Ilott is to drive the car on Friday.
