Lotus has reportedly amended its testing schedule in order to give race drivers Jarno Trulli and Heikki Kovalainen more time at the wheel of the new T127 car.

After test driver Fairuz Fauzy gave the single seater its proper test debut at Jerez last week, it was believed the Malaysian would return to the car at Barcelona.

But as the 27-year-old achieved enough mileage to qualify for his FIA super license, Finland's Turun Sanomat said Fauzy has been sidelined for this week's final test of the winter.

The newspaper said technical boss Mike Gascoyne has instead pencilled in Trulli for the first two days at the Circuit de Catalunya, and Kovalainen for Saturday and Sunday.
