Formula One tyre manufacturer Pirelli have invited all ten teams to a special 12 hour end-of-season test session in Abu Dhabi.

The tyre test day will take place on December 1st, just two days after the final race weekend of the 2015 Formula One World Championship season.

Formula One teams will not be allowed to use the tyre test day as an opportunity to try new parts nor alter their cars in anyway as their testing sessions will be defined by Pirelli.

The test is specifically for Pirelli to test their new 2016 compounds around the Yas Marina Circuit, including a brand new purple coloured ultrasoft compound.

Formula One teams will be encouraged to run one car, preferably with a race or reserve team driver.
