Fernando Alonso will not take part in the opening pre-season test of the year, Ferrari confirmed on Thursday. The driving duties are instead set to be allocated between team-mate Felipe Massa and development driver Pedro de la Rosa.
Massa will start the team's 2013 Formula 1 preparations by driving on the 5, 6 and 7 of February in southern Spain, before de la Rosa makes his Ferrari debut on the final day of the test. Meanwhile, Alonso will be focusing on an 'intense' training regime.
For the second gathering at the Circuit de Catalunya, Alonso will enjoy the first three days of testing from 19-21 February, before Massa takes over for the fourth day. The final test, taking place at the same venue, will be split evenly between the pair.
Ferrari will launch its new contender at its Maranello factory on Friday 1 February. The presentation is set to be streamed live via the Italian team's official website.
