Robert Kubica will test for Williams in Abu Dhabi after this weekend’s season-closing grand prix.
The test is effectively the final step in an evaluation process to see if the Pole can return to Formula 1 in 2018 after seven years away.
Williams will also assess Renault reserve driver Sergey Sirotkin.
The Russian has emerged as a candidate along with Daniil Kvyat, Pascal Wehrlein and Paul Di Resta, although Kubica remains their first choice.
