Australian GP victor Nico Rosberg and Ferrari returnee Kimi Raikkonen are among the drivers who have been selected for the Drivers' Press Conference at Sepang on Thursday.

Fresh from his comfortable victory at the season opener which sees him lead the World Championship for the first time, Rosberg will be aiming to capitalise on Mercedes' early-season dominance with another win this weekend, whereas Raikkonen will be looking to ignite his challenge after a low-key second Ferrari 'debut' in Melbourne.

The high-profile duo will be joined by two drivers for whom Melbourne proved a strong start to the season, Williams' Valtteri Bottas and F1's newest youngest points scorer Daniil Kvyat, along with a further pair who will simply be hoping for much better in Malaysia, Lotus's Pastor Maldonado and Caterham's Kamui Kobayashi.

In Friday's team bosses' conference, newly-installed Lotus Deputy Team Principal Federico Gastaldi will make his first appearance in front of the international press corps and is likely be grilled on the Enstone team's turbulent start to 2014.

He is joined in the six-strong panel by fellow team chiefs Cyril Abiteboul (Caterham), Monisha Kaltenborn (Sauber), Graeme Lowdon (Marussia) and Franz Tost (Toro Rosso) along with Pirelli's motorsport director Paul Hembery.

Both press conferences from Sepang will be shown live on Sky Sports F1 with the drivers' session up first early on Thursday from 7am, while the Friday press conference follows Practice Two at 8am.
