Pedro de la Rosa
Test driver Pedro de la Rosa and Driver Academy member Jules Bianchi have been chosen to share driving responsibilities for Ferrari during the Pirelli tire test at the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. Pedro de la Rosa will be behind the wheel of the F138 for the first two days to continue his development that has up to this point been taking place in a simulator. Bianchi will be given an opportunity to demonstrate what he has learned in his 2013 appearances on the Formula One schedule during the last day of tire testing.
The tire test has been called by the FIA in the name of safety to give teams an opportunity to run on the 2014 spec tires that were unavailable to be tested in Brazil due to rain.
Other teams that will be making an appearance at the tire test include, Red Bull, Toro Rosso and Mercedes.
