The Formula 1 season has finally started, I've just watched some of the first pre-season test from Bahrain. Here's the schedule for the three days of testing:
Of course the first 4 hours of testing doesn't reveal who will win the season championship, but...McLaren led the way with the fastest time, with Alpine and Red Bull very close behind. Defending champs Mercedes had a gear box problem and did very little time on track, and ended with the slowest time, but I'm sure that will change.
Ferrari looked better than last year, right up to the final 10 minutes when Leclerc had to stop the car due to a mechanical issue. Aston Martin is up there in the middle of the field too.
Rookie Mick Schumacher was on track for Haas, and reserve driver Roy Nissany was piloting the Williams car.
You can watch the testing on the F1 TV app, look for more info on the official Formula 1 website of www.formula1.com
