Ferrari has confirmed it will bring its race drivers Fernando Alonso and Felipe Massa to the three-day Silverstone test later this month.

The FIA gave the option of bringing current drivers to the Young Driver Test to give them an opportunity to test Pirelli's latest tyres, or run rookie's who are able to assess upgrades.

The Italian outfit has decided to go with the former as it believes getting experienced feedback on the tyres - which will be used from Hungary onwards - is more important.

"It will be very important to have this opportunity to try something new," Ferrari's sporting director Massimo Rivola said.

"Obviously, this test will be carried out with the actual race drivers, as there would be no sense in trying something new with youngsters at the wheel, who do not have the necessary experience to provide the required feedback."
