No Force India testers for Bahrain

Force India won't be handing the car to a test driver during the second outing in Bahrain, opting instead to use only the race drivers.

Last time out in Jerez, the team put test driver Daniel Juncadella through his paces on the final day, Friday.

However, that proved to be the team's best day out on track as the Spaniard managed 81 laps compared to Sergio Perez's 48 and Nico Hulkenberg's 17.

Now in a bid to ensure the drivers get as much action as possible, Force India will only use the race drivers in Bahrain.

Hulkenberg will be in action on the opening two days, Wednesday and Thursday, before handing the VJM07 to Perez for Friday and Saturday.
