The first round of pre-season testing ahead of the 2022 F1 season gets underway this week, with the drivers and teams hitting the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in Spain between 23-25 February.
Unfortunately for fans, this test will not be broadcast on television, but Formula 1 will share a highlights summary through their channels at the end of each day.
RacingNews365.com will also be present at the circuit and will keep you informed about the events in Spain via our live blog.
How the schedule works for F1 testing
Each day of the three-day test in Barcelona 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 08:00 GMT and runs until 12:00 GMT. Following the break, testing resumes at 13:00 GMT and draws to a close at 17:00 GMT.
