Driver line-up for Barcelona test

The third pre-season test gets underway on Friday morning with all but Hispania using their 2011 cars at the Barcelona track.

The majority of teams have opted to split their running between their two drivers, with the exception of Renault, who have opted to give Nick Heidfeld some extra running after they announced him as Robert Kubica's official replacement.

Toro Rosso will also give Sebastien Buemi a little less time in the STR6 so they can give Daniel Ricciardo a chance to lap the track, as he did with Red Bull in Valencia.

Finally, Hispania wil be present after missing Jerez for a private test with Pirelli. They will continue to use their 2010 car, the F110, and will run Narain Karthikeyan on all four days as a second driver is yet to be confirmed.
