Formula 1 will host a two-day test at the Yas Marina Circuit on Tuesday and Wednesday to conclude the year's track action.

In a combination of two tests, regular F1 drivers will run Pirelli's new-for-2022 18-inch tyres using mule cars, while a host of young drivers will run in 2021 cars on the outgoing 13-inch wheels.

Williams are the only team not to have produced a mule car, but will still take part in the 'Young Driver Test' with their 2021 challenger, while the rest of the field combine this and Pirelli tyre testing.

Most of the teams have now confirmed their line-ups for Tuesday's and Wednesday's track time, with several new faces joining the familiar names.
