McLaren-Honda has announced Oliver Turvey will drive its car for one day of this week's Formula 1 test at the Circuit de Catalunya.

A former GP2 Series front runner and winner of his class in Le Mans, Turvey has long had an association with the McLaren set-up and is currently competing with its partners Honda in the Japanese Super GT series.

For this week's test, McLaren will give the 28 year-old a run out in the MP4-30 alongside fellow Briton and race driver Jenson Button, driving the car on Wednesday.
