Ferrari retains three F1 test drivers for 2014

Davide Rigon, Marc Gene and Pedro de la Rosa will continue to carry out simulator and test duties for Ferrari after being retained for 2014
Ferrari has confirmed that it has retained its line-up of test drivers for the development of the F14-T.

Following the first test at Jerez last week, Ferrari has announced that Davide Rigon has been signed as one of the team's test drivers for a further two years. Rigon previously raced in GP2 before a broken leg in 2011 curtailed his progress, but he did drive for Ferrari at the Silverstone Young Driver Test last year.

Rigon will be combining his testing duties with a World Endurance Championship programme, driving a 458 GT2 for AF Corse in 2014.

The team will also be using both Marc Gene and Pedro de la Rosa throughout the year. Gene has been with Ferrari since 2004 while de la Rosa joined at the start of 2013 after leaving HRT, having previously performed test driver duties for McLaren.
