Toyota, meanwhile, kick off their session with veteran driver Jarno Trulli behind the wheel of the TF108. Team mate Timo Glock is scheduled to take over the car on the final day.

After his strong showing at the European Grand Prix, Toro Rossos Sebastian Vettel is scheduled to share driving duties with team mate Sebastian Bourdais over the three days.
