Force India will run three drivers at the two-day test that follows the Spanish Grand Prix.

The team's reserve and test driver, Nicholas Latifi, will make his first appearance in the VJM11 at the test on 15th and 16th of May, which represents the first opportunity for him to work with the team trackside ahead of his Friday free practice programme, which begins at next month's Canadian Grand Prix.

Latifi, currently 8th in the F2 standings following his podium finish in Azerbaijan on Sunday, will drive on the Tuesday after the race before development driver, Nikita Mazepin, takes over on the Wednesday.

Alongside the team's normal testing duties, a second VJM11 will be run at the test in support of Pirelli's 2018 tyre testing programme.

Mercedes Junior, George Russell, who is currently sixth in the F2 championship following his win on Sunday, will work with Pirelli on the Tuesday, while Latifi will drive again on the Wednesday.
