Pirelli will reportedly begin its Formula One track testing programme on Monday.

According to the Spanish daily AS, the sport's new tyre supplier for 2011 will be running at the Mugello circuit near Florence in Italy.

The sports newspaper said Nick Heidfeld will be at the wheel of a Pirelli-shod 2009 Toyota.

It is expected that German Heidfeld, 33, will vacate his existing role as Mercedes' reserve driver.

The initial Mugello test will reportedly be for three days, until Wednesday 18 August.

The next Pirelli test will then take place at Jerez, followed by Monza, Le Castellet and then back to Mugello, the Diario AS report added.
