Williams’ reserve driver Valtteri Bottas will test for the British team on the opening day of next week’s Mugello session. Bottas will take to the Italian track on Tuesday, whilst Bruno Senna and Pastor Maldonado will be in action on Wednesday and Thursday respectively.

Since commencing his current Williams role late last year, the Finn has enjoyed plenty of time behind the wheel of the FW34. As well as a pre-season test outing, the 2011 GP3 champion participated in Friday practice sessions at the Malaysian, Chinese and Bahrain Grands Prix.

Bottas joins a growing number of third drivers in action on the first day at Italian track. Lotus’s Jerome D’Ambrosio, Caterham’s Rodolfo Gonzalez and Force India’s Jules Bianchi will also test on Tuesday.
