Felipe Nasr will make his Formula 1 race weekend debut on Friday behind the wheel of a Williams FW36.

Nasr, the team's test and reserve driver, will participate in the opening practice session ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix in place of regular driver Valtteri Bottas.

The 21-year-old Brazilian drove the FW36 during the final pre-season test at the circuit last month.

Nasr will dovetail his Williams role with his GP2 commitments with Carlin, as the series begins in Bahrain this weekend.

Nasr will be joined out on track by two other test drivers, as Giedo van der Garde and Robin Frijns will test for Sauber and Caterham respectively.
