Daniel Ricciardo and Carlos Sainz Jr will test for Red Bull in the Abu Dhabi test next week.

Sainz Jr is one of three drivers in the frame to replace Daniil Kvyat at Toro Rosso, with Jean-Eric Vergne and GP3 champion-elect Alex Lynn the others. However, the drive in Abu Dhabi is part of Sainz's reward for becoming the youngest ever Formula Renault 3.5 series champion this season at the age of 20.

It will be the first time Sainz Jr has driven the RB10 but his second appearance for Red Bull after he drove the RB9 at the Silverstone Young Driver Test in 2013.
