The days after Monza's Italian grand prix could be crucial as Ferrari contemplates its driver lineup for 2013. Italy's Autosprint reports that the famous Maranello based squad is almost certainly planning to field development drivers Jules Bianchi and Davide Rigon at Magny Cours.

In mid September at Magny Cours, the former French grand prix venue, Ferrari as well as Mercedes and Force India will conduct their allowed days of 'young driver' testing. Frenchman Bianchi is also Force India's reserve driver this year, meaning he will probably get to drive two different formula one cars at his home circuit.

And Italian Rigon, 26, who badly injured his legs in a GP2 crash last year, extended his relationship with Ferrari for 2012 and has been doing simulator and straightline testing. Autosprint acknowledged that Ferrari is yet to confirm its Magny Cours lineup. (GMM)
