American youngster Santino Ferrucci will make his Formula 1 test bow during next week's in-season running at Silverstone.

GP3 rookie Ferrucci, 18, will sample Haas' VF-16 on both days of running after the British Grand Prix, having signed on as the team's development driver earlier this year.

"Becoming a Formula 1 driver is my ultimate goal and I can’t thank Haas enough for this opportunity," said Ferrucci.

"Nothing beats seat time, and the experience of driving a Formula 1 car and working with Haas will be invaluable."

Ferrucci is one of three drivers set to receive their first taste of Formula 1 during next week's test.

Nikita Mazepin will compete for Force India while Red Bull youngster Sergio Sette Camara will link up with Toro Rosso.
