Sauber has confirmed Felipe Nasr will kick off its participation in the second Formula 1 pre-season test of 2015 in Barcelona as it looks to continue its encouraging pace from Jerez.

The Swiss team, which failed to score a point for the first time in its history last year, made a positive start to 2015 in the new-look Ferrari-powered C34, with rookie Nasr topping one of the four test days in Jerez.

For the second test, to be held at the Circuit de Catalunya near Barcelona, Nasr will hit the track first on the first day before handing over to team-mate Marcus Ericsson on day's two and three. Nasr will then return to the car on the final day.
