The first race of the 2020 F1 season will be in March but before then we’ve got the new car launches and pre-season testing to look forward to!

2020 pre-season F1 testing
[smr2020test]Because the 2020 F1 calendar has expanded to a record-breaking 22 races, the amount of pre-season testing this year has been cut. Instead of eight days of running, the teams will have just six days to test their cars before the new season begins.
The tests will be held on the following days:
- Wednesday 19th – Friday 21st February, Circuit de Catalunya
- Wednesday 26th – Friday 28th February, Circuit de Catalunya
All 10 teams are expected to take part in the pre-season tests.
RaceFans will report from the track throughout all six days of testing. Here’s how you can keep up with the latest from us:
