Toro Rosso will be among the teams at the Jerez test later this month.

Lotus boss Eric Boullier insisted on Thursday that the Enstone based team will not be the only F1 outfit missing in action when the all-new cars and turbo V6s burst into action in southern Spain late in January.

One of the missing teams, however, will not be Red Bull-owned Toro Rosso.

The Faenza based team's new recruit, rookie Daniil Kvyat, told the Russian publication Championat he is currently training ahead of his first 2014 duties.

"I have already done the seat fitting for the new car in late December," said the 19-year-old.

"I will come back to our factory in January to meet with the engineers and talk about all the new things the driver needs to know.

"Before Jerez I will probably be in the simulator. And once we are in Jerez then the time (before Melbourne) will go very quickly," Kvyat added.

When asked about his schedule at the wheel of the new Toro Rosso at Jerez, Kvyat admitted he is not sure how the track time will be divided between himself and experienced teammate Jean-Eric Vergne.

"The order of the testing can be seen different ways," he said. "Some fans think that because someone is the first (to drive) means something, but that's nonsense.

"Actually I would like to drive on the second day, but the team will decide and anyway it is not so important."

Kvyat also responded to claims the new regulations, particularly those relating to the front nose, has resulted in most 2014 cars looking "ugly".

"An F1 car is always a work of art," he insisted.

"Yes, there are a couple of details you have to get used to and that even I don't really like, but in six months time no one will pay any attention to it anymore.

"The nose? It will be interesting, let's see, but I don't care what the car looks like -- what is important is that it is quick."
