Line-up for this week’s Silverstone F1 test

1026LB1D1452Following yesterday’s enthralling British Grand Prix, the eleven Formula 1 teams will now turn their attention to the post-race test at Silverstone on Tuesday and Wednesday.

A number of the teams have elected to step their full-time race drivers down for the test, with Fernando Alonso, Jenson Button, Esteban Gutierrez, Romain Grosjean, Nico Hulkenberg, Kamui Kobayashi and Marcus Ericsson all taking no part.

Kimi Raikkonen will also miss the test to give him time to recover from his horror shunt during yesterday’s British Grand Prix. The Finn will be fit to take part in the German Grand Prix in two weeks’ time though. Marussia driver and Ferrari driver academy member Jules Bianchi will step in for him.
