Who is driving when at the Barcelona F1 test?

A rundown of which drivers are expected to be in action over the two days of the Barcelona in-season test.
The F1 circus remains in Catalonia for another few days as it gears up for the second in-season test of 2014.

Having similarly stayed on in Bahrain after round three of the campaign, all eleven teams will take advantage of two days of running at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona before heading home to prepare for the Monaco Grand Prix at the end of the month.

Although some participants remain to be confirmed, it would appear that a mix of race and reserve drivers will be in action across the two days, spearheaded by current championship leader Mercedes, which shows no sign of letting up on its rivals by wheeling out Lewis Hamilton on Tuesday and Nico Rosberg on Wednesday. Toro Rosso and Marussia are following suit, by giving Jean-Eric Vergne/Daniil Kvyat and Max Chilton/Jules Bianchi a day each respectively, while others opt to field a less experienced driver for at least part of the test.

After being forced to stand down from the Bahrain test, Stoffel Vandoorne is scheduled to make his McLaren debut on Wednesday, while Sebastien Buemi, Charles Pic, Giedo van der Garde, Daniel Juncadella, Susie Wolff and Robin Frijns are all due to see some action.

Full testing line-up:

Red Bull: Sebastien Buemi (Tuesday), Sebastian Vettel (Wednesday)
Mercedes: Lewis Hamilton (Tuesday), Nico Rosberg (Wednesday)
Ferrari: Kimi Raikkonen (Tuesday and Wednesday)
Lotus: Charles Pic (Tuesday), Pastor Maldonado (Wednesday)
McLaren: Jenson Button (Tuesday) Stoffel Vandoorne (Wednesday)
Force India: Nico Hulkenberg (Tuesday), Daniel Juncadella (Wednesday)
Sauber: Giedo van der Garde (Tuesday), Esteban Gutierrez (Wednesday)
Toro Rosso: Jean-Eric Vergne (Tuesday), Daniil Kvyat (Wednesday)
Williams: Felipe Massa (Tuesday), Susie Wolff (Wednesday)

Despite it being testing days, we will no doubt get to Wednesday evening and all the detractors will be complaining about Susie Wolff being "slower than Massa & Bottas" ..(whether or not she was actually meant to be going for fast times or trying-out upgrades/ set-ups etc) Never mind Susie... you just get out there and drive... you'll be about 120mph faster than the armchair experts who hate women.
