McLaren has confirmed that it won't use its race drivers for the in-season test that will take place before the European leg of the F1 season.

The three-day session will take place at the Mugello circuit in Italy from 1-3 May ahead of the first European event of the campaign at Catalunya, and is the only test during the season where teams can run their race drivers.

Despite that, McLaren has confirmed that Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button will both sit out the test, with the team instead electing to make use of its test drivers for the session.

Oliver Turvey and Gary Paffett will therefore be in action during the test, where all twelve teams are expected to appear.
