F1 testing runs with Ferrari and Manor for Fuoco and King

Antonio Fuoco and Jordan King will get opportunities with Ferrari and Manor at the first Formula 1 in-season test of 2016 at Barcelona next week

F1 testing runs with Ferrari and Manor for Fuoco and King

For 19-year-old Italian Fuoco, a member of the Ferrari Driver Academy and competing with Trident in GP3 this season, it will be his second outing with the team.

Fuoco will be hoping to make more of an impression than was the case in last year's in-season test in Austria in June when he crashed the car towards the end of the first day.

Fuoco will drive this year's Ferrari at the Catalunya circuit on Wednesday, with four-times champion Sebastian Vettel at the wheel on Tuesday.

Like Fuoco, Manor development driver King will also get his second taste of an F1 car on Wednesday, taking over the cockpit of the MRT05 from Pascal Wehrlein.

King, with Racing Engineering for a second season in GP2 this year, took part in the Pirelli test in Abu Dhabi at the end of the 2015 campaign.

Only Red Bull and Toro Rosso have yet to confirm their driver line-ups for the two-day test, with both teams likely to make a decision following the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday

Mercedes Rosberg/Ocon
Ferrari Vettel/Fuoco
Red Bull TBC/TBC
Williams Lynn/Massa
Renault Ocon/Magnussen
Toro Rosso TBC/TBC

Why Italian GP success is on for McLaren even if Verstappen dominates

For the second time in 2021, McLaren will line up for the start of a grand prix from the first row. It knows it has the chance of “glory” if things go well for Daniel Ricciardo and Lando Norris at the start of the 2021 Italian Grand Prix, but even if they just maintain their grid positions, signs from the rest of the Monza weekend suggest success is very possible for Formula 1’s other orange army
