Sebastian Vettel will remain in Spain following Sunday's Grand Prix to drive for Red Bull at next week's two day test at the Circuit de Catalunya which starts on Tuesday.

The German will be at the wheel of the RB10 on Wednesday, taking over from Sebastien Buemi who will drive on the opening day of the test. Daniel Ricciardo, who drove on both days of the first in-season in Bahrain, will not take part in the running at Barcelona.

Vettel has endured a difficult start to the 2014 season and missed out on valuable mileage during Friday Practice in Spain due to wiring loom problem. The test will be key for Red Bull as they seek to close the gap to the dominant Mercedes cars of Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg with no further tests scheduled until after July's British Grand Prix.
