Sauber will run Esteban Gutierrez and Robin Frijns in the Young Driver Test in Abu Dhabi next month. Frijns will be driving on the Tuesday (6 November), the first day of testing. The 21-year-old Dutchman won the Formula Renault 2.0 Eurocup in 2011 and this weekend will be contesting the title in the 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 World Series on the Circuit de Catalunya. In the run-up to the final he is five points adrift of the championship leader. For Gutierrez (pictured), the Young Driver Test will mark his fourth outing with the team since he first got inside a Formula One cockpit in late 2009. Likewise aged 21, the Mexican joined the Sauber F1 Team as an affiliated driver and since 2011 has been the official reserve driver for the Formula One outfit. He will be test-driving in Abu Dhabi on the Wednesday and Thursday.
It is widely expected that Gutierrez will be promoted to a full race seat with the Swiss team next season.
