F1 In-Season Test Driver Lineup at Hungary

By Joey Barnes, Editor-in-Chief

Formula 1 is set for its second in-season test of 2017, with the two-day event set to take place at the Hungaroring.

Per regulations, a minimum of two of the four sessions must be run by a driver not currently competing for the championship. In several cases, teams go to reserve and/or test drivers, or also decide to try out young drivers from various junior formula categories.

The test will also feature the highly-anticipated return of former Canadian Grand Prix winner Robert Kubica, who will be driving for Renault on the second day.
