DTM champion Marco Wittmann will test for Toro Rosso as part of his reward from BMW for winning this year's title.

Wittmann, 24, claimed four wins on his way to a maiden DTM crown in his second year in the category.

The news was revealed following the DTM finale at Hockenheim, in which BMW confirmed that Wittmann will defend his crown in 2015.

"Marco has an extraordinary season behind him, in which he has given BMW Motorsport an awful lot of pleasure," said BMW Motorsport Director Jens Marquardt.

"It is now our turn to reward him for his efforts. BMW has come up with something very special. I am delighted that we can also make his childhood dream come true with the Formula One test.

"Thanks to the relationship we enjoy with our premium partner Red Bull, it was possible for us to organise a test drive in the Toro Rosso."
