Magnussen to kick off Sakhir test

Kevin Magnussen has revealed he will be driving the MP4-29 on the opening two days in Bahrain.

The FIA agreed and after one outing in Spain Formula One is making its way to the Sakhir circuit in Bahrain. With the air temperature set to reach a high of 21'C after the four days, Magnussen will be in action on days one and two before handing over to Jenson Button.
