With driver Mark Webber laid up with a broken leg following his cycling accident in Australia last weekend, Red Bull have announced a revised line-up for their forthcoming Jerez test.

Red Bull Junior Team driver Brendon Hartley, 2008 tester Sebastien Buemi and the outfit’s new '09 recruit, Sebastian Vettel, will all be in action over the course of the three-day session, which will take place at the Spanish circuit from December 15-17.

Hartley, who finished this year's British Formula Three series in third, will take charge of an RB4 on the first day of the test, alongside Buemi. The New Zealand teenager enjoyed his last taste of Formula One power back in April, shaking down Toro Rosso’s STR3 at the Italian track of Vairano.

Following the opening day of running, Buemi will continue to test, but the Swiss driver will be joined on track by Vettel for the concluding two days of the session.
