Force India has formally confirmed that Adrian Sutil will test for the team in Barcelona this week as the debate over the second seat continues.
It will be the German’s first F1 mileage since his last race for the team at the end of 2011. He sat out last year but attended several races, spending most of his time in the Force India camp.
Paul Di Resta will drive on Tuesday and Wednesday before handing over to his former team mate. Jules Bianchi, who drove at the recent Jerez test, will be back in the car for the final day on Friday.
The team has indicated all winter that the choice would be between Sutil and Bianchi.
