Ir was announced yesterday afternoon that the Scuderia Ferrari team is to hand a Formula 1 debut to another of its young drivers Antonio Fuoco in next week’s second and final in-season test after the Austrian Grand Prix.

The 19-year-old Ferrari Academy driver, who won the 2013 Formula Renault 2.0 ALPS series, is currently competing in GP3 with Carlin.
