Rosberg will be on duty for Mercedes at Bahrain test
16 December, 2013
Nico Rosberg will take time off his vacation to drive for Mercedes throughout the three days of Pirelli tyre testing in Bahrain from 17 to 19 December.
Only four teams: Red Bull, Ferrari, Toro Rosso and Mercedes will be on duty at the Sakhir track, after McLaren, Force India and Lotus declined the invitation.
Unlike Ferrari and Red Bull who have opted to use reserve drivers, Mercedes and Toro Rosso will use their 2014 race drivers.
Bahrain testing line-up:
- Red Bull: Sebastien Buemi on all three days
- Mercedes: Nico Rosberg on all three days
- Ferrari: Pedro de la Rosa on Days 1 and Day 2; Jules Bianchi on Day 3
- Toro Rosso: Jean-Eric Vergne on Day 1 and Day 2 morning; Daniil Kvyat on Day 2 afternoon and Day 3
