Sauber reveals that Adderly Fong and Roy Nissany will drive a 2012 C31 at Valencia next week.

Days after Lotus announced that Esteban Ocon will test a two-year old E20 as part of his ongoing development programme and as a reward for winning the FIA F3 Championship, Sauber has revealed that Fong and Nissany will test a two year old C31.

Fong will be driving during the first day of testing on Wednesday. The 24-year-old Chinese driver has competed in several single seater championships in Asia and Europe. This year he has focused on the Audi R8 LMS Cup, an Asia-based sprint race series.

"I am very pleased I am going to test a Sauber C31 in Valencia," he said. "It will be my first time driving a Formula 1 car with this high a power to weight ratio, and I am looking forward to it."

Nissany takes over the car on Thursday. The 19-year-old Israeli, who also holds a French passport, is currently competing in his second season in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship. Over the last five years, he has competed in single seaters in Europe.

"I am delighted to have the chance to test the Sauber C31, and I will put lots of efforts into it to do a good job," said the young Israeli.
