Five-time world rally champion Sebastien Loeb will return to the cockpit of a Formula One car later this month when he tests for Red Bull in Barcelona. Loeb will get behind the wheel of the RB4 during an official session at the Spanish circuit in just under two weeks’ time.

Back in December 2007, he got his first taste of Formula One power in a Renault, during a special promotional event at Le Castellet in the south of France. Whilst Loeb took charge of the R26, former Renault driver Heikki Kovalainen tested the Frenchman’s title-winning Citroen C4.

Toro Rosso's Sebastian Vettel, who will race for Red Bull in 2009, will also be in action for the team at the Barcelona test.
