Schumacher absence from Barcelona test confirmed by Ferrari
Ferrari have confirmed their driver line-up for the in-season test following the Spanish Grand Prix at the Circuit de Catalunya, with Mick Schumacher stood down from duty, having enjoyed a first taste of modern Formula 1 machinery in the previous event in Bahrain.
Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel will both be in action for the Scuderia, with both splitting duties between their team's programme and Pirelli's testing on the same days.
Schumacher joined the team's senior drivers in Sakhir, before driving for Alfa Romeo on the second day of the Bahrain test.
However, his Formula 2 rival Antonio Fuoco has been selected for the Barcelona test.
The Italian will be at the wheel for the Scuderia on the Wednesday in Montmelo – making his third testing appearance for the team.
Fellow Ferrari Driver Academy member and F2 racer Callum Ilott has been given his first chance to test a F1 car. He will drive for Alfa on the Tuesday.
