0 Comments

The official start of the 2015 F1 season may still be six weeks away, but the teams and drivers will get their first taste of their new cars in pre-season testing which kicks off in Jerez, Spain tomorrow.

Traditionally, the test at the circuit deep in the south of Europe has always marked the beginning of the new season, with the teams ironing out any problems their new cars may pose ahead of the first race of the year in Australia.

As per 2014, there will be three pre-season tests in the next month. The Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will host two four-day tests (February 19-22 and February 26 – March 1) ahead of the long trek to Melbourne two weeks later.
