Another youngster has been tipped for a forthcoming F1 test with the famous Ferrari team.

It emerged recently that the Italian squad has allocated the three days of next month's young driver test at Jerez to Italians Daniel Zampieri and Marco Zipoli, and the Mexican teenager Pablo Sanchez Lopez: the top three finishers in Italian F3 this year.

But it is reported that French 20-year-old Jules Bianchi, who is managed by Nicolas Todt, is also likely to get a run in the F60.

He won the F3 Euroseries in 2009 with Todt's ART team, and found some F1 fame earlier this year when Todt very publicly introduced Bianchi to Ferrari team officials in the pitlane during practice for the Belgian GP.

Todt confirmed to L'Equipe that a December test for Bianchi is "very probable". Italy's La Gazzetta dello Sport said the test would likely take place in a Ferrari.
