Alonso misses Silverstone test

NEWS STORY
16/07/2013

As speculated, Fernando Alonso will miss this week's test at Silverstone as Felipe Massa is joined by Italian youngster Davide Rigon.

The Italian, who has been on the books of the Maranello outfit since 2011, will take to the track on all three days, vacating the cockpit for Massa only on Friday morning, when the Brazilian will be able to assess the new Pirelli compounds.

The team has taken this decision so that Rigon will be able to work on the technical development of the car, while also giving useful cockpit time to Felipe, who is keen to get back on track after his rather short German GP.

Race drivers have been given dispensation by the FIA to drive at this test, as a result of the tyre problems that occurred at Silverstone during the Grand Prix in June.

The programme has been established solely by Pirelli and approved by the FIA, with a fixed number of sets available.
