The teams will gather at Silverstone in mid July where young drivers test will take place

Apr.24 (GMM) This year's young drivers test will take place at Silverstone in July, it has emerged.

Last year, the concept for giving young drivers a break into Formula One amid the sport's tight testing regulations became highly farcical, with the running split over three different locations and dates.

But according to Germany's Auto Motor und Sport, the teams have decided on a common date for 2013.

The test will not, however, take place at the end of the season, and Abu Dhabi will not be the venue.

Rather, the teams will gather at Silverstone in mid July, just before the August or 'summer' break.

The three day test will take place between July 17 and 19, during the three week gap between the races in Germany and Hungary.
