Pedro de la Rosa will be at the wheel of a 2011-specification single seater.

Jul.31 (GMM) Ferrari has begun a three-day test at the former French Grand Prix venue Magny Cours.

That is the claim of the authoritative Italian sports newspaper La Gazzetta dello Sport, reporting that Pedro de la Rosa is at the wheel of a 2011-specification single seater.

The report said Ferrari is conducting the test privately, not in conjunction with F1's tyre supplier Pirelli, in the wake of Mercedes' highly-controversial Pirelli test with a 2013 car at Barcelona in May.

Demonstration Pirelli tyres are being used by Ferrari, the report added, while Spain's El Mundo Deportivo said the team is working to improve the correlation between the wind tunnel, the simulator and the track.
