Mexican Sergio Perez will test a Ferrari Formula 1 car later this year, the Maranello squad has revealed. Perez, making his Formula 1 debut this season with Sauber, is part of Ferrari's driving academy.
The rookie will test Ferrari's 2009 Formula 1 car at Mugello or Fiorano in September, when he will be joined by GP2 driver Jules Bianchi, also part of Ferrari's academy.
"It will be a very interesting test, because we will be putting Jules Bianchi and Sergio Perez up against one another," said FDA director Luca Baldisserri
"I think they will both be very motivated and, for us, it will be the perfect opportunity to assess both drivers."
