Nicolas Prost, Edoardo Mortara and Davide Valsecchi will be in action for Lotus at the forthcoming Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi.
Prost (pictured) will drive on Tuesday 6 November, with Mortara taking over on Wednesday and Valsecchi on the Thursday.
"I'm really looking forward to driving for Lotus at a test in this year's car, which we have all seen to be strong at so many Grands Prix this year," said Prost. "It's a great honour for me as a driver and I want to do the very best job I can to assist the team with development, as well as giving good feedback for any future projects."
"This is a fantastic opportunity for me to join Lotus and especially to be driving the E20 in Abu Dhabi," added Mortara. "I can't wait to be in action and working with a team which is performing so well this season and has such good prospects for the future. Contributing to the team's programme is likely to be highly rewarding; I'm eager to learn from the experience and highlight my potential." "For me this is a great honour," said Valsecchi, "as I am eager to showcase my talents and demonstrate that I am ready to take the next step in my career after winning the GP2 Series. Lotus F1 Team is a great team with a superb group of engineers, so it's great to be getting out on track with them in Abu Dhabi."
"I think we have a great line-up of drivers to work with the team in Abu Dhabi and it will be very interesting for us to see how they stack-up," said team boss Eric Boullier, "especially as we will have all the data from the Grand Prix which takes place the week before. Nicolas we know well from his existing work with the team, while Edoardo and Davide are new to us so it should be a productive three days; not just for the drivers, but also the team as we evaluate new parts on the car for our final push at the last two races of the season."
