Williams have confirmed that test driver Valtteri Bottas will be given his first run in the FW34 next week.

Bottas was appointed the team's reserve driver in December, with Frank Williams anticipating that the youngster would participate in 15 Friday practice sessions over the course of the 2012 season. Having sat out the Jerez test last week, his outing next Wednesday at Barcelona thus marks the Finn's first run in the team's new charger.

Williams have also revealed their line-up in full for both of the upcoming Barcelona tests, with Bruno Senna driving on Day One next Tuesday and Pastor Maldonado completing the session on Thursday and Friday.

The Venezuelan will then immediately return to action on Day One of the third test on March 1, before sharing driver duties with Senna on the Friday and Saturday before the Brazilian completes Williams' winter running on Sunday March 4.
