Perez and Hulkenberg reveal the 2014 Force India
Force India have changed their driver schedule for the Jerez test with Sergio Perez staying in the car for Day Two after completing just a handful of laps on Tuesday.
Nico Hulkenberg was scheduled to drive the VJM07 on Wednesday but instead will have to wait on the sidelines for his first outing on Thursday after his Mexican team-mate enjoyed little track time as he debuted for the team on Day One in southern Spain.
Perez only ran for eleven laps on Tuesday
The team's third driver Daniel Juncadella will then get behind the wheel on Friday.
Fewer than 100 laps were completed on Tuesday at Jerez as F1's new turbo era endured a troubled start with only six drivers recording a lap time. Force India are, however, the only team to have announced a change to their roster, with Max Chilton expected to arrive at the circuit overnight after Marussia were forced to withdraw from Day One due to a fault on their new car.
