Perez to test for Ferrari in September

Sauber’s Sergio Perez will be testing for Ferrari in September, it has been confirmed by the Maranello team. The 21-year-old Mexican, who made his F1 debut at the start of this season, will join GP2’s Jules Bianchi for a run in the F60 chassis of 2009.

At present, circuit testing is strictly forbidden mid-season, with each team only permitted a select few straight-line aerodynamic runs. However, Ferrari will be able to carry out the circuit test as it will not be using its current car.

“We will be back on-track in September, at Mugello or Fiorano," explains Luca Baldisserri, head of the Ferrari Driver Academy of which Perez is a member.

“It will be a very interesting test because we will be putting Jules Bianchi and Sergio Perez up against one another. I think they will both be very motivated and for us it will be the perfect opportunity to assess both drivers."
