Vettel, Webber slated for RBR test schedule

Both Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber are slated to appear at the only in-season F1 test of 2012, which begins at Mugello on Tuesday.

Despite winning the most recent grand prix in Bahrain, there will be no resting on laurels for the Red Bull Racing team as it approaches this week's Mugello test.

While likely title rival McLaren has already confirmed that it will be running neither of its regular race pilots, the Milton Keynes team has aped Mercedes in deciding that it can only gain from keeping its 'big two' in harness for another three days as it prepares for the opening European races of the season.

Where Mercedes will put both Nico Rosberg and Michael Schumacher in the car on day one, RBR will give each of its drivers one-and-a-half days straight, with Mark Webber kicking off on Tuesday and carrying on on Wednesday morning, before Bahrain winetes the remaining running.

McLaren, meanwhile, has given both Lewis Hamilton and Jenson Button time off after four 'flyaway' races, prefering to field test drivers Gary Paffett and Oliver Turvey. Ferrari has opted for the same route as Mercedes and Red Bull, meanwhile, with both Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa sharing the workload in the F2012.
