Force India will give their new Mercedes-powered Formula One car its track debut at Jerez in southern Spain on Sunday, the team said in a statement.
The VJM02, to be driven by Italian Giancarlo Fisichella [Images] and Germany's [Images] Adrian Sutil [Images], is one of the last of the new cars to emerge and will get only limited testing with the season starting in Australia [Images] on March 29.
Force India failed to score a point last season but have since agreed a five-year deal with McLaren [Images] and Mercedes to use their engines and gearbox as well as the new KERS energy recovery system.
The team used Ferrari [Images] engines last year.
