The Danish driver shared the news on Twitter, announcing that he will drive the new MP4-29 on the first two days of the second pre-season test.
He completed one and a half days of running with the Mercedes-powered car at the opening winter test in Jerez, ahead of his maiden Formula 1 campaign.
The 21-year-old’s teammate, Jenson Button, will take over driving duties on Friday and Saturday. The second and third tests both take place at the Bahrain International Circuit, with a four-day gap separating them.
All 11 team will be in attendance at the second test, which will give the teams a chance to test their 2014 machinery and the new Pirelli tyre compounds in warmer temperatures.
