Stefano Domenicali has revealed that current Ferrari test drivers Luca Badoer and Marc Gené are most likely to be retained by the Italian team ahead of the 2010 season. Although in-season testing is currently set to remain barred, the Team Principal has explained that the duo is still able to contribute to other projects within the organisation.
With Giancarlo Fisichella already signed as Ferrari reserve driver for 2010, the team revealed on Wednesday that the ex-Force India pilot could still be loaned to other teams in order to maintain his racing experience next year.
With regulations stating that no circuit running can be performed outside of Grand Prix weekends, though, test drivers' work is limited to the winter.
"It's true that development work is now done by the race drivers but we use test drivers for promotional engagements and work on road cars," the Team Principal explained to Gazetta dello Sport of Italian Badoer and his Spanish team-mate. "We'll find a solution for him and for Marc Gené."
