Ferrari has detailed on the upcoming F1 tests that it will stage along with Pirelli, while confirming the reserve/development list.

With the winter period nearing to its end, Ferrari are first up to get back into some F1 action. They will have their own private testing which will co-incide with the Pirelli tyre testing at Barcelona circuit between January 29-31 of next week.

Before the testing line-up, Ferrari also confirmed its set of reserve and development drivers for 2024 F1 season. Academy driver Oliver Bearman has been named as the reserve which he will share with Antonio Giovinazzi and Robert Shwartzman, who carry on from 2023.

With the latter two competing in WEC, Bearman will get more chance considering he will be present at the races for his F2 season with Prema. Moving onto the development driver list, Arthur Leclerc has been named as one, even though he is not part of the academy.

Leclerc will join the regular Antonio Fuoco and Davide Rigon, who have been in the role for long. The Monegasque has seemingly moved out of F2 with Ferrari naming him as a Scuderia Baldini 27 driver in the Italian GT Championship.

Leclerc will get his first taste of a F1 car when he drives the 2022 F1-75 on January 29. Both Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz will share the SF23 for Pirelli tyre test on January 29 and January 30, which includes a shared drive of F1-75 on January 30. Bearman, meanwhile, will be the sole to drive the F1-75 on January 31.
