Which driver is out on track each day in Barcelona’s pre-season running


Teams experience the new cars for the first time.

The 2022 cars are finally out on track, with the pre-season running beginning overnight at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

The first three days of testing aren’t broadcast. However, that hasn’t stopped online coverage from the usual places through day one.

All ten teams will be in action across the pre-season running, although which driver takes to the track varies from team to team.

Friday Grandstand tickets for the Formula 1®️ Heineken®️ Australian Grand Prix 2022 are available from $91. Get them before they sell out.
