Leclerc to test for Ferrari in Hungary

Charles Leclerc

FIA Formula 2 championship leader Charles Leclerc has confirmed on Twitter that he will drive for Ferrari on the first day of the post Hungarian Grand Prix test at Hungaroring.

The 18 year old Monégasque driver leads the Formula 2 championship standings after 12 points scoring rounds.

Leclerc, who drives for Prema and is part of the Ferrari Driver Academy, has won five times so far during the Formula 2 season.

The reigning 2016 GP3 champion, who drove in four FP1 sessions with Haas in 2016, will be in the cockpit of the Ferrari SF70-H.

The team has yet to announce who will drive on the second day. Earlier this year during the Bahrain test, Ferrari reserve driver Antonio Giovinazzi and Sebastian Vettel shared track duties.
