Leclerc, who is tipped for a Ferrari junior role, will run for championship-winning ART Grand Prix, a team co-owned by his manager Nicolas Todt.

Joining him at the French squad will be Honda protege and Japanese F3 race winner Nirei Fukuzumi and Motopark's F3 driver Nabil Jeffri of Malaysia.

Dennis, meanwhile, will run for Arden alongside the young duo of BRDC F4 champion Will Palmer and French F4 race winner Giuliano Alesi, son of ex-F1 driver Jean.

While DAMS' name is absent from the entry list, it is believed the team will be running the drivers entered under the "Status Grand Prix" moniker - F3 duo Tatiana Calderon and Santino Ferrucci, along with GP3 podium finisher Ralph Boschung.

Boschung is among the three drivers in the test with a full GP3 season under their belt - the other two being Ferrari protege Antonio Fuoco and Matt Parry, who will both run for Trident alongside FR2.0 frontrunner Kevin Jorg.

Koiranen will bring over two of its top FR2.0 drivers in Jack Aitken and Jake Hughes, while also fielding Matevos Isaakyan, who scored points for the team in the final round of the season.

Campos' line-up will be made up of F4 Sudamericana champion-elect Pedro Cardoso, FR2.0 veteran Steijn Schothorst and F3's Mahaveer Raghunathan, while Jenzer will field Euroformula Open duo Leonardo Pulcini and Antoni Ptak alongside their F4 regular Nico Rindlisbacher.
