Kevin Magnussen will drive on the opening two days of this week's pre-season test in Bahrain for McLaren.

Jenson Button will then take over for the final two days of the second test, in a reversal of McLaren's original Jerez plans.

The Woking-based team were forced to miss the first day of running at the Spanish venue and both drivers got a day-and-a-half running each over the final three days.

The second test begins on Wednesday February 19 at the Bahrain International Circuit, with the teams keen to test the new 1.6-litre power units in warmer temperatures than they experienced in southern Spain, whilst Pirelli are also keen for more representative running on their 2014 rubber.
