Caterham will join Mercedes in revealing their car for the 2014 season on the morning of the first day of winter testing at Jerez on January 28.

With less than three weeks to go until F1 ends its two-month hibernation and the sport's rules revolution begins in earnest, teams are steadily beginning to reveal their plans for pre-season.

Caterham have become the third team to detail the schedule for their new car reveal, the Leafield-based outfit announcing on Twitter that, like Mercedes, they will roll out on the opening day of testing in southern Spain.

While the impending Jerez launch, and news that they will be at all three winter tests, confirmed they are fully on course with the build of their new car, Caterham remain the only team yet to name either of their drivers for the new season with 2013 incumbents Charles Pic and Giedo van der Garde still waiting on news on their futures. The type number of the new car was also not included in the team's Tweet.

2014 car launch schedule
January 24 - McLaren MP4-29 - Online.
January 28 - Mercedes W05 & Caterham - Jerez
February - Lotus - Pre-Bahrain test.

2014 pre-season test schedule
January 28-31 - Jerez, Spain.
February 19-22 - Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain.
February 27-March 2 - Bahrain International Circuit, Bahrain.

The Sky Sports F1 Online team will be providing live commentary of all three winter tests, starting in Jerez on Tuesday January 28, with live updates from trackside also on Sky Sports News
