No young driver test for Sainz or Vettel

Current Formula 1 drivers have been told by the FIA that they are not eligible to do the ‘young driver test’ in Abu Dhabi after this weekend’s 2020 finale. Auto Motor und Sport quotes the FIA as admitting it has the power to make exceptions to the ‘young driver’ rule “at the request of the team”. “I’ve heard that Red Bull is putting its simulator driver Buemi in the car,” said Racing Point boss Otmar Szafnauer. But according to Auto Motor und Sport, the FIA has issued the teams with a clarification of its position regarding which drivers are eligible for exemptions.
