Caterham F1 has confirmed Robin Frijns will get an outing in its car during first free practice for this weekend's Bahrain Grand Prix.

Having missed out on the chance to get any free practice running during his short time as test and reserve driver at Sauber in 2013, the Dutchman will now get his first opportunity to partake in an F1 race weekend at Bahrain.

The 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 Champion will drive the team's Renault-engined CT05 during FP1, though it hasn't been confirmed whether he will take the place of regular drivers Kamui Kobayashi or rookie Marcus Ericsson.
