Rosberg to drive for Mercedes in Bahrain F1 test

Nico Rosberg to run with Mercedes in Bahrain as F1 tyre test line-up completed
Mercedes has completed the driver line-up for this week's Pirelli tyre test in Bahrain by confirming it will run Nico Rosberg all week at the Sakhir circuit.

Unlike Red Bull and Ferrari, the Brackley-based team has elected to make use of the services of one of its race drivers for the test, organised to allow Pirelli to conduct some running with its 2014-spec tyres prior to the opening pre-season test in Spain in late January.

Only four teams are to take part in the test, with the remainder having turned down the chance to be involved.

Bahrain F1 tyre test line-up:

Tuesday 17 December:

Sebastien Buemi Switzerland Red Bull-Renault
Nico Rosberg Germany Mercedes-Mercedes
Pedro de la Rosa Spain Ferrari-Ferrari
Jean-Eric Vergne France Toro Rosso- Ferrari

Wednesday 18 December:

Sebastien Buemi Switzerland Red Bull-Renault
