Ferrari has elected to field its race drivers Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen at next week's wet weather tyre test at Paul Ricard, which is being organised by Pirelli.

Pirelli confirmed on Friday that Vettel and Raikkonen will drive for Ferrari at the French venue across Monday and Tuesday, joining regular Red Bull racers Daniel Ricciardo and Daniil Kvyat.

McLaren, the only other team set to participate in the test, will send reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne to conduct the entirety of the outfit's running.

Pirelli will utilise the two days of running in order to conduct wet weather testing, with a number of prototypes set to be trialled.

Formal 2016 pre-season testing will begin at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on February 22.
