Bianchi to replace resting Raikkonen at test

Jules Bianchi has been called up for testing duties for Ferrari on Wednesday after the team decided it best to rest Kimi Raikkonen following his huge British Grand Prix crash. The Finn hit the safety barriers after spinning in an impact which registered at 47G. Whilst he was unharmed and fit for the next race in Germany, the team have advised him to rest for a few days. Marussia driver and Ferrari junior Bianchi, will therefore drive on Wednesday, with Pedro de la Rosa opening the test at Silverstone on Tuesday. Fernando Alonso meanwhile will drive on the simulator at the same time to help correlate the data.
