Toro Rosso has confirmed its driver line-up for the opening Formula 1 pre-season test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya next week.

After releasing a first image of its 2018 car, the STR13, earlier this week, Toro Rosso will officially unveil the new chassis in the pit lane one hour before the start of testing in Barcelona on Monday.

Brendon Hartley will be the first driver to complete an extended run in the STR13, taking the reins of the car for all of Monday before handing over to teammate Pierre Gasly for Tuesday's sessions.

Hartley will then return to the car for Wednesday, with Gasly closing out the test for Toro Rosso on Thursday.

Monday's running will mark the first proper run for Toro Rosso with new power unit partner Honda, having enjoyed a successful filming day earlier this week that was capped to 100 km.
