Valtteri Bottas will give Williams’ Mercedes-powered FW36 its maiden run at next week’s first pre-season test in Jerez.

The team confirmed on Twitter that Bottas will handle driving duties on the first two days in Spain, before handing over to new team mate Felipe Massa for the final two days of the test, which runs from January 28-31.

Williams also revealed that they will be running with a ‘heritage blue’ livery at Jerez. The Grove-based team appear to be well on schedule for the new season, having fired up the FW36 for the first time on Friday.
