Caterham Reserve Driver Robin Frijns will get to drive the Caterham CT05 on the first day of Formula 1 testing in Bahrain, which gets underway on Wednesday, 19 February.

F1 returnee Kamui Kobayashi will get two days in the cockpit, on Thursday, and the final day Saturday. Rookie Marcus Ericsson will be in action on Friday, the team announced on Twitter.

Although Caterham ran the most laps of any of the Renault powered teams during the first test in Spain last month, they will be looking to pack in the mileage at Sakhir. (GP247)
