Britain's Callum Ilott will be Ferrari's Formula One test driver next season, the Italian team said on Tuesday.

Britain’s Callum Ilott will be Ferrari’s Formula One test driver next season, the Italian team said on Tuesday.

Ilott, 22, was Formula Two runner-up to Germany’s Mick Schumacher this year but missed out on a Formula One race seat for 2021. He tested with Ferrari-powered Alfa Romeo in Abu Dhabi on Tuesday.

Schumacher, son of seven-times world champion Michael, will race for the Ferrari-powered Haas team while Japan’s Yuki Tsunoda, who finished third in F2, is expected to move up with AlphaTauri.

“I look forward to contributing to the work the team does on and off track, and to all of the new things I can learn by taking on this exciting new challenge,” Ilott said in a statement.
