Mick Schumacher will return to Formula 1 action with Mercedes in Spain after being confirmed for next week’s tyre test.
Mercedes will stay on at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for two days of post-event running next Tuesday and Wednesday as part of Pirelli’s 2023 programme.
Regular race driver George Russell will drive the W14 on Tuesday before reserve Schumacher takes over duties on Wednesday.
It will be Schumacher’s first on-track running in Formula 1 machinery since joining Mercedes as its reserve driver.
He spent 2021 and 2022 racing for Haas but was not retained for 2023 after the team opted to recruit compatriot Nico Hulkenberg.
“He has done a great job with the team so far, working hard back in the simulator and giving valuable input trackside,” said Mercedes boss Toto Wolff.
“We’re looking forward to him getting his first taste of on-track running this year, and sure it will help him in his role as reserve driver.”
