Nick Heidfeld will on Friday be unveiled as Mercedes GP's reserve driver for the 2010 season.

Germany's Bild newspaper said the insider information came directly from Brackley, where the final touches are being put on the MGP W01 car that will make its test debut at Valencia on Monday.

32-year-old Grand Prix veteran Heidfeld's appointment means that all three of Mercedes' drivers are German, moving sections of the domestic media to liken the team to its World Cup football 'Nationalmannschaft' (national team).
