Test driver Valtteri Bottas is to sample the new Williams for the first time during the second pre-season F1 test in Barcelona next week.

Bottas had been due to conduct the initial shakedown of the car prior to last week's test at Jerez only for the session to be cancelled due to poor weather.

The Finn will sample the car on the second day of running on Wednesday when he takes over from Bruno Senna, before Pastor Maldonado gets behind the wheel for the final two days.
