Ricciardo will be testing this car next week

Toro Rosso has confirmed that Australian Daniel Ricciardo will be driving for the team in Free Practices in 2011.

In a statement from Toro Rosso, they say "We’re doing everything in threes this year, because apart from Jaime Alguersuari and Sebastien Buemi, we’ve also got Daniel Ricciardo on the books.”

The statement added, “The Aussie youngster will drive for us in FP1 (that’s Free Practice 1) on Friday morning’s at most GPs this season, and yes we know that means Thursday in Monaco.”

Ricciardo visited the team's factory in Faenza, Italy on Friday to have a seat fitting for the STR6. The team also added that they hope to run Ricciardo at next week's test in Jerez.
