Williams has confirmed that it will give a debut to its 2014 F1 car in the opening test of the season at Jerez.

The Grove-based team made use of its Twitter account to confirm that the new Mercedes-powered car would be present at the first pre-season test in Spain, where Valtteri Bottas and Felipe Massa will both get the chance to get behind the wheel.

Bottas will be in action for the opening two days of running in the FW36, which won't run in its definitive livery, with new signing Massa then taking over for days three and four.
