Force India announced last week that the Spaniard would join the team as its test and reserve driver for the 2014 season.

The 2012 European Formula 3 champion will compete in the DTM with Mercedes for a second straight season, but will also have Friday practice outings with Force India during the year.

Juncadella will be at the wheel of the new Mercedes-powered VJM07 on Thursday at Jerez. He will take over from Nico Hulkenberg, in action on Wednesday.
