After a short winter break lasting just over a couple of months, the Formula 1 cars will be fired up again for winter testing at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit prior to the 2020 Formula 1 season.

The first three days of testing gives all ten teams taking part in the World Championship the opportunity to try their new cars for the first time, the main priority being reliability testing.

That involves the cars running with many sensors fitted to acquire as much data as possible and correlate that data with figures seen during winter simulation work: heat sensitive tape, Pitot tubes, flow-vis paint and rakes are all part of the teams’ armoury.

This first 2020 F1 test session runs from 19 to 21 February, from 9 in the morning to 6 at night.
