The Spaniard, who wasn't present at the first test in Jerez, will get three consecutive days behind the wheel to make up for the missed time.

Felipe Massa will drive on the final day of the test on February 22nd.

Ferrari said the decision to allow Alonso to skip Jerez was "to allow [him] to complete his training programme."
