Bahrain pre-season test 2022

Schedule for the 2022 F1 Bahrain pre-season test

With Formula 1's 2022 action getting underway for three days of testing in Barcelona, it's time for the final days of preparation for the new season. With a three-day test scheduled in Bahrain this week, here's the full schedule for the action.

The second round of pre-season testing ahead of the 2022 F1 season gets underway this week, with the drivers and teams hitting the Bahrain International Circuit between 10-12 March.

Unlike the first test in Barcelona, this test will be broadcast live on television and F1TV, as well as offering live timing – available through the F1TV app.

RacingNews365.com will also be present at the circuit and will keep you informed about the events in Bahrain via our live blog.

How the schedule works for F1 testing

Each day of the three-day test in Bahrain will follow the same schedule. The days are divided into morning and afternoon sessions, with a one-hour lunch break in between. This also gives the teams an opportunity to prepare the car if another driver is taking over for the afternoon session.

The morning session begins at 07:00 GMT and runs until 11:00 GMT. Following the break, testing resumes at 12:00 GMT and draws to a close at 16:00 GMT.

Check out the full schedule for the first 2022 F1 pre-season test in Bahrain below.
