Button, Webber to debut new cars

Button, Webber to debut new cars

Jenson Button and Mark Webber will have the honour of being the first to drive their teams' 2013 challengers when testing begins.

Button, who is entering his fourth season with McLaren, will complete the first laps in the MP4-28 at the Jerez circuit, five days after McLaren unveil their new car.

The Brit will reportedly hand over the test driver duties to his new team-mate Sergio Perez on Day Two before returning on the third day.

Meanwhile, Webber will have Red Bull's new RB9 at his disposal for the first two days of the Jerez test.

The Australian will hand the car over to his triple World Champion team-mate Sebastian Vettel for the final two days.

Testing gets underway at the Jerez circuit on 5 February.
