James Calado, who was the leading rookie in last year’s GP2 championship, will drive for Force India having previously performed straight-line aerodynamic testing for them.
“As a graduate of the Racing Steps Foundation, his talent and determination have brought him to our attention and this is the ideal occasion to evaluate him further,” said team owner Vijay Mallya.
Adrian Sutil and Paul di Resta will conduct tyre testing in the VJM06.
Toro Rosso will evaluate three young drivers including Carlos Sainz Jnr, who will also drive for Red Bull at the test.
Daniil Kvyat will have his first run in a Toro Rosso on Friday afternoon. Johnny Cecotto Jnr will spend all of Wednesday at the wheel of the STR8.
