Germany's Adrian Sutil and Frenchman Jules Bianchi, rivals for the last remaining seat on the Formula One grid with Force India, will both test for the team in Barcelona this week.

The team says Sutil, the team's former driver who was dropped at the end of 2011 after being convicted of grievous bodily harm, will be in the car on Thursday with Bianchi testing on Friday at the Circuit de Catalunya.

Britain's Paul Di Resta, the team's only confirmed race driver at present, will start the second pre-season test.
