Red Bull have confirmed Antonio Felix da Costa and Robin Frijns will drive for the team during the Abu Dhabi Young Driver Test following next month's GP.

Felix da Costa is a member of Red Bull's driver programme and finished third in this year's GP3 Series.

He was also parachuted into World Series Formula Renault 3.5 for the final six rounds, where he impressed with four wins. The Portuguese will drive the RB8 on the opening two days at the Yas Marina circuit.

Dutch driver Frijns, gets his chance as a reward for winning the Formula Renault 3.5 Championship. The 21-year-old is not part of the Red Bull driver programme, but did drive the team's 2010 challenger, the RB6, in Russia earlier this year as he was the highest placed FR3.5 driver not connected to an F1 team at that stage of the season.

Frijns will also drive for the Sauber team during the three day test as he looks to follow former World Series Champions Marc Gene, Fernando Alonso, Ricardo Zonta, Heikki Kovalainen and Robert Kubica into F1.
