Dominant Formula 2 front runner Charles Leclerc has confirmed he’ll spend a day in the Ferrari SF-17 during the post-Hungarian Grand Prix test, the Tuesday and Wednesday after the race.

He’s tested with Haas F1 Team before with four FP1 outings last year, but this will be his first time in the current Ferrari chassis.

The Monegasque driver has spent this year racking up wins in F2 at an incredible clip, some in dominant fashion and others in comeback mode. His weekend performance at Baku was particularly noteworthy as it came after the loss of his father, showing incredible mental resolve and fortitude.

Leclerc posted the news on Twitter on Tuesday following media reports that emerged on Monday about the test.

Very happy to announce that I'll be driving 1 day for @scuderiaferrari during the F1 tests after the Hungaroring GP. pic.twitter.com/Sr9fyrGkIs

Leclerc is not the only driver confirmed for the upcoming test, which runs the Tuesday and Wednesday after the Hungarian Grand Prix on July 30.

Sahara Force India has confirmed Lucas Auer and Nikita Mazepin will also have half a day each. Mazepin has tested once previously while Auer, the DTM driver, will have his first run in a Formula 1 car. More information is here via the official F1 website.

Auer was rumored to test a couple weeks ago, as Mercedes motorsport head Toto Wolff said he was keen to get the DTM driver an F1 run.
