Mirko Bortolotti will drive for Scuderia Toro Rosso in the Formula 1 young driver test at Jerez next month. The 19-year-old Italian will test on the second of three days of testing from Dec. 1-3, with fellow Red Bull Junior Brendon Hartley likely to drive on the first and third days.
Bortolotti has previously tested for Ferrari, as part of his prize for winning the 2008 Italian F3 championship. He set an unofficial lap record at Fiorano in the F2008 last year. He was signed up by Red Bull's young driver program shortly after his Ferrari test in 2008.
Bortolotti finished fourth in the Formula 2 championship this season with one victory, and also finished on the podium in the F3 Euro Series finale at Hockenheim.
