Red Bull Racing has confirmed their line-up for the young driver test in Abu Dhabi next month.

Antonio Felix Da Costa will drive for the first two days of the test, with newly crowned Formula Renault 3.5 Series champion Robin Frijns taking over for the final day.

Felix da Costa is a member of the Red Bull Junior team and recently finished third in the GP3 Championship. He also competed in six of the nine rounds of the 2012 Formula Renault 3.5 series, taking four wins and finishing fourth-place overall. The 21-year-old recently drove a Red Bull Racing RB7 at a Show Car event in Seoul, Korea.

At the start of the year, Red Bull confirmed that the winner of FR3.5 would be given a day of testing and Frijns's place at the Abu Dhabi test was confirmed even before he was crowned as champion courtesy of his rivals' links with other teams.

Frijns will also test for Sauber.
