The Caterham Formula 1 team will run Giedo van der Garde and Alexander Rossi during the young driver test at Yas Marina.
GP2 racer van der Garde, the team's reserve driver, has already been in action in the car this year, having had practice runs in China, Japan and Korea.
The 27-year-old Dutchman will also drive in practice at this weekend's Indian GP. He will be in charge of driving duties during the first two days of the test.
Caterham test driver Rossi, who finished 11th in Formula Renault 3.5 this year, will take over on the final day.
"We are delighted to be running both Giedo and Alexander," said team CEO Cyril Abiteboul. "With all the drivers we work with we want to make sure they can see that we can help guide them along a clear path to the top of the motorsport industry.
"On top of the FP1 sessions both drivers have already run for us, giving both Giedo and Alexander the chance to also test with us in Abu Dhabi is a good example of our ongoing commitment to helping develop talented drivers achieve their long-term goals."
