Red Bull has confirmed it will run junior team drivers António Félix da Costa and Carlos Sainz Junior at the Young Driver Test in July.

The three-day test, taking place at Silverstone between July 17th and 19th, gives rookie drivers with less than three F1 starts a chance to get behind the wheel.

Portugal's Da Costa took part in last year’s Young Driver Test at Yas Marina, where he put Red Bull Racing on top of the timesheet on his second day.

He currently lies third in the GP3 championship, racing for Arden Caterham.

Sainz Jr has also joined the GP3 ranks. The 18-year-old took his first podium with MW Arden at the Valencia round of the championship and currently lies sixth.
