Force India have confirmed that former driver Adrian Sutil will appear for the team at the this week's pre-season test in Barcelona, Spain.

The 30-year-old German, who raced for the Silverstone-based squad between 2007 and 2011, will get behind the wheel of the new Mercedes-powered VJM06 on day three of the four-day test on Thursday.

Paul di Resta - Force India's only confirmed driver for 2013 - is scheduled to drive on Tuesday and Wednesday, with Jules Bianchi taking over on Friday.

Sutil’s return to the cockpit was widely anticipated, after he visited the Force India factory for a seat fitting last week. Both he and Bianchi are thought to be in contention for the team’s vacant race seat alongside Di Resta.
