Andy Soucek, to shortly be confirmed as Virgin's new 2010 reserve driver, is expected to test the VR-01 this week at Barcelona.

Reports said the Spaniard and reigning F2 champion will replace Alvaro Parente as Virgin's reserve, after the Portuguese driver's funding fell through.

Spanish media sources said Soucek, 24, will test for one day at Barcelona, the scene of the final pre-season test between Thursday and Sunday.
