Ferrari has announced Antonio Fuoco will complete its junior driver Formula 1 testing commitments in Spain next week as it reveals its full two-car line-up.

With the second in-season F1 test taking place at Circuit de Catalunya after the Spanish Grand Prix (May 14-15), former Ferrari junior and current simulator driver Fuoco will test the team’s SF90 on the second day with Charles Leclerc on testing duty the day before.

The test will mark Fuoco’s third test outing for Ferrari having debuted in Austria back in 2015 before returning at the Barcelona circuit in 2016. According to a Ferrari release, the Italian has completed 856km of testing mileage for the Italian manufacturer.

Ferrari will also take part in the Pirelli tyre tests at Circuit de Catalunya, meaning it will run two cars, with Sebastian Vettel in the tyre test car on the first day before handing over to Leclerc for day two.

Ferrari driver academy member Callum Ilott will also take part in the test in Spain when he makes his F1 debut for Alfa Romeo on day one. It means Mick Schumacher, who starred at the Bahrain in-season test for Ferrari and Alfa Romeo, will not be in F1 testing action in Spain.

Ferrari is set to debut its new power unit specification, along with updated fuel from Shell, during the Spanish Grand Prix before the test, as team boss Mattia Binotto confirmed the upgrade has been introduced earlier than it previously planned with the update initially targeted for the Canadian Grand Prix.
