Toro Rosso will run both of their 2014 race drivers, Jean-Eric Vergne and newcomer Daniil Kvyat, in the Pirelli tyre test in Bahrain next week.

Unlike fellow Sakhir testers Red Bull and Ferrari, who have both decided to draft in test drivers, Toro Rosso will give Vergne and Kvyat a day-and-a-half each in the STR8.

Although essentially a 2014 tyre test, the session will likely prove particularly invaluable for GP3 Champion Kvyat given the 19-year-old has completed just three days of running in an F1 car.

Mercedes are now the only team running in Bahrain not to have confirmed their driver plans.

Bahrain test line-up:
Red Bull: Sebastien Buemi - All three days.
Mercedes: TBC
Ferrari: Pedro de la Rosa - Days One & Two; Jules Bianchi - Day Three.
Toro Rosso: Jean-Eric Vergne - Day One and Day Two morning; Daniil Kvyat - Day Two afternoon & Day Three.
