A two-day off-season test will take place on Tuesday and Wednesday after the Austrian Grand Prix at the Spielberg racetrack. We will see two racers on the track - Marc Wittmann and Antonio Fuova, who will test the Formula 1 car for the first time.
Wittmann, a DTM Series racer, earned the opportunity after winning the DTM Series with BMW last year. So we’ll see him on the second day when he takes over the Toro Rossa race car from Max Verstappen, who will be driving the first day.
Fuoco will be behind the wheel of Ferrari, which is the only team besides Force Indie not to compete with the regular racers of this season. Fuoco is a member of Ferrari's Young Driver Academy and will test on the first day, and will be replaced on the second day by reserve racer Esteban Gutierrez.
Force India would split the two-day test between Mercedes reserve racer Pascal Wehrlein and Esteban Ocon, a candidate for the title of champion in the GP3 series, which also belongs to Mercedes. After the first day with Force Indio, Wehrlein will test another Mercedes car, which he will take over from Nico Rosberg.
Stoffel Vandoorne, the current leader in the GP2 Series Championship, will be driving a McLarn race car for the first time and then handing it over to Fernando Alonso, who will initially have to perform on the first day. The team changed the order in the race due to Sunday's accident with Kimi Raikonnen.
Williams will dedicate the first day to Susie Wolff. She will then drive the race car in just under two weeks in free practice before her home race in Silverstone. Of the two regular racers, we will see Valtteri Bottas on the track.
Daniel Ricciardo and Pierre Gasly will drive a Red Bull race car. Gasly finished sixth last weekend as part of the Austrian GP2 Series racing weekend.
At Lotus, they hired Romain Grosjean and Jolion Palmer, and at Sauber they hired Felipe Nasr and Ferrari protégé Raffaele Marciello.
As we witnessed in the tests in Barcelona, Marussia will not perform this time either.
