Pirelli set for Paul Ricard run

Pirelli set to test at Paul Ricard and Monza in preparation for 2011 F1 season
Pirelli is set to conduct its second test session ahead of the 2011 F1 season at the Paul Ricard circuit next week.

The tyre manufacturer completed the first shakedown tests of its 2011 rubber at Mugello last week, with newly-appointed test and development driver Nick Heidfeld hitting the track at the wheel of a 2009-spec Toyota.

After that initial test, 422race.com reports that Pirelli will now move to France for a second test next week before moving on to Monza.

The Monza test won't take place before the Italian Grand Prix in late September.

Current F1 teams won't get the chance to try out the new Pirelli tyres until the 2010 season draws to a close in Abu Dhabi in mid-November.
