The Dutchman, who has joined the team after a race stint at Caterham, previously informed GPUpdate.net of his plans to complete the opening 90 minute session at Sakhir, but it was not clear which driver he would replace. Van der Garde will also be in action on the second day of the subsequent post-race test in Bahrain, taking place from April 8-9. On Day 1, fellow tester Sergey Sirotkin will drive to fulfil the requirements for a Super Licence.
