Carlos Sainz Jr will test for Red Bull in Abu Dhabi as his prize for winning this year's Formula Renault 3.5 Series.

Sainz Jr, 20, became the first Red Bull-backed driver to win the crown and will drive the RB10 on the first day of the post-season test next Tuesday.

Sainz Jr undertook a demonstration run for Red Bull in the RB8 mid-season and also tested the RB9 during the young driver test in 2013.

Sainz Jr is one of the candidates for the vacant Toro Rosso seat for 2015.

Regular driver Daniel Ricciardo will take over duties for the second day of the test.

Toro Rosso has already confirmed that Max Verstappen will drive the STR9 on both days of the test.
