Marussia have named Jules Bianchi as one of their drivers for the new Formula 1 season.

The 23-year-old Frenchman has replaced Luiz Razia in the team following a financial issue involving the Brazilian driver.

Razia's sponsors missed a second payment deadline for the 23-year-old to take a seat in the team, resulting in his contract being terminated.

Bianchi will test for Marussia in Barcelona on Saturday and Sunday before making his debut at the Australian Grand Prix later this month.

The new Formula 1 season starts in Melbourne on March 17.
