Lotus tests Valsecchi
GP2 champion Davide Valsecchi will have an opportunity with Lotus in the Abu Dhabi Young Driver test, alongside the previously confirmed Nicolas Prost and Edoardo Mortara.
The 21-year-old son of four time world champion Alain, will drive on the opening day, with Mortara taking over on the second day and Valsecchi concluding the test.
Toro Rosso, meanwhile, has announced that it will run GP2 runner-up Luiz Razia, on the first and third days of the test, with Johnny Cecotto Jr in the car on the Wednesday.
The 23-year-old Brazilian Razia did the same test two years ago with Virgin and drove in FP1 for Lotus at last year's Chinese GP.
