Red Bull names Buemi for Bahrain F1 test

Sebastien Buemi to drive for Red Bull in Pirelli tyre test in Bahrain
Red Bull Racing has confirmed that it will use Sebastien Buemi to carry out next week's Pirelli tyre test in Bahrain.

The championship winners are one of four teams – alongside Ferrari, Mercedes and Toro Rosso – to be taking part in the three-day session, with McLaren and Force India having both pulled out despite being on the list originally revealed by the FIA earlier this week.

After Ferrari confirmed it would run test driver Pedro de la Rosa and Driver Academy member Jules Bianchi, Red Bull has now revealed that it has also elected not to make use of its race drivers for the session, with Buemi instead given the chance to run in the RB9.

The Swiss driver, who will continue to act as a reserve driver for Red Bull next season, is set to be in action for all three days.

Mercedes and Toro Rosso have yet to announce who they will field in the test, with Mercedes set to make an announcement via its social media channels ahead of the session, which has been scheduled to provide the chance to run Pirelli's 2014 tyres ahead of the first planned test with the latest spec of F1 car.
