Ferrari confirm Vettel and Raikkonen for wet weather test


It was announced by the Ferrari team yesterday that Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen will share the driving duties in next week’s Pirelli wet tyre test.

Earlier this month Pirelli announced that three teams – Ferrari, McLaren and Red Bull Racing – would attend a two-day test at the Paul Ricard test. The test will focus on Pirelli’s wet tyres with the drivers trialing several compounds.

McLaren have already confirmed GP2 champion Stoffel Vandoorne for the test while Red Bull will run Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat.

Ferrari have now confirmed their line-up, putting their regular drivers Vettel and Raikkonen in the car.

The two-day tests takes place on January 25-26 at the Paul Ricardo circuit which is fitted with a sprinkler system allowing for simulated wet testing.
