Force India development driver Alfonso Celis Jr. will debut the squad's new VJM09 on Monday and complete half of the running during the first pre-season test in Spain.

Celis Jr. joined the outfit at the end of 2015 and participated in the post-race tyre test in Abu Dhabi.

The Mexican is set to receive selected outings in practice sessions at Grands Prix in 2016 but will take to the track at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya to debut the VJM09.

Sergio Perez will drive on Tuesday, Nico Hulkenberg on Wednesday before Celis Jr. returns on Thursday.

Perez and Hulkenberg will split driving duties across the second test, which takes place from March 1 to 4.
