Ferrari Academy driver Antonio Fuoco is to get his first run in a current F1 car at the post-Austrian Grand Prix F1 test alongside Esteban Guttierez.

The Italian, currently competing in the GP3 Series with Carlin Motorsport, has been a member of Ferrari development programme for more than two years now, but this is the first time he has been invited to participate with the Scuderia in an official F1 capacity.

The 19 year-old, who raced against Toro Rosso driver Max Verstappen in European F3 last season, will drive the SF15-T on one day of the test at the Red Bull Ring, while official reserve driver Gutierrez will drive the car on the other.
