F1: In-season tests to be held in Spain and Austria

Infiniti Red Bull Racing revealed on its web site the dates of the in-season tests to be held during the 2015 Formula 1 season.

Our Swiss colleague Mathias Brunner said that a spokesperson from Italian tire manufacturer Pirelli has confirmed the dates.

In 2014, there were four, two-days in-season test. It seems that teams found that to be a bit excessive.

This year that number has been reduced to just two, two-day in-season tests (at Barcelona's Circuit de Catalunya in May, following the Spanish GP, and the Red Bull Ring in July, following the Austrian Grand Prix).

Each team must allocate two days from these tests to running young drivers.

The program of the summer tests:

May 13-14: Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona (Spain)
June 23-24: Red Bull Ring, Spielberg (Austria)
