F1 is back this Friday. Kind of.

While fans will still have to wait two more weeks for the Bahrain Grand Prix to watch the first race of the season, the pre-season testing will have all ten teams accelerating their new cars as soon as Friday.

The three-day practice sessions in Bahrain will allow teams to gather data and test their new components with no lap or kilometres limits.

While Aston Martin’s Lance Stroll will be on track on all three days of tests, Nicholas Latifi will only have the Saturday to drive his FW43B.
