Antonio Felix da Costa, Red Bull, Yas Marina, 2013Red Bull have confirmed they will participate in the Young Drivers Test which will take place at Silverstone next month.

Mercedes’ ban for attending the test handed down by the FIA Tribunal had prompted speculation Red Bull might skip it to hold their own test using their race drivers.

But Red Bull confirmed on Friday it will participate in the test on July 17th to 19th.

Antonio Felix da Costa, who drove for them at last year’s test, will do the first two days of running at Silverstone. Carlos Sainz Jnr will do the driving on the final day.

Da Costa is third in Formula Renault 3.5 and Sainz lies sixth in the GP3 series.
