Rumours linking Sebastien Loeb with a Formula One race foray continued on Monday.

The Le Parisien newspaper reports that the multiple world rally champion is scheduled to test the GP2 car of the David Price Racing team after this weekend's Catalunya rally.

It has been rumoured this year that Loeb, 35, wants to race in November's Abu Dhabi Grand Prix for his sponsor Red Bull's junior team Toro Rosso.

All F1 testing during the championship season is banned, except promotional days and some straight-line aerodynamic running.

Loeb's rally team boss Olivier Quesnel said earlier this month that "if someone makes a proposal (for Abu Dhabi) to Sebastien, Citroen Racing will authorise him (to race)".
