Toro Rosso driver Daniel Ricciardo will get the chance to impress his prospective future employers when he drives for Red Bull at the Silverstone young driver test tomorrow.

With front line drivers now allowed to take part in the test Sebastian Vettel and Mark Webber will also test Pirelli tyres at the Northamptonshire circuit.

Ricciardo, along with team-mate Jean-Eric Vergne and Lotus driver Kimi Raikkonen, has been tipped to take over a Red Bull when Webber leaves at the end of the season.

Ricciardo will take to the track tomorrow afternoon, Webber on Thursday afternoon and Vettel on Friday afternoon.

Red Bull will also test with the team's junior drivers, with Antonio Felix da Costa on track on Wednesday and Thursday mornings and Carlos Sainz Junior on Friday morning.

A statement on the Red Bull website read: "Antonio's test with Infiniti Red Bull Racing fulfils the team's commitment to grant the mid-season leader of the World Series by Renault a full day's test in the RB9."
