Red Bull will run Antonio Felix da Costa and Carlos Sainz Junior at the Young Driver Test at Silverstone next month.

Da Costa has been hotly tipped for a Formula 1 seat after dominating the second half of the 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 season and drove for the team at last year's test in Abu Dhabi.

The Portuguese driver has also served as Red Bull's reserve driver in China and Canada this year when regular driver Sebastien Buemi was competing in sportscars.

Sainz, son of the rally legend with the same name, is competing in GP3 this year with MW Arden and took his maiden podium finish in the series last time out in Valencia. He also contested two rounds of the World Series by Renault this season, finishing sixth on his debut in Monaco.

The Young Driver Test will take place at Silverstone from July 17-19.
