Formula 1 2016 Pre-season testing will get underway in late January with a Pirelli tyre test at Paul Ricard in the south of France, a two-day affair which will also see the track soaked with water to allow for wet-weather testing.
2016 Formula 1 pre-season usual testing will take place exclusively at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the track, which will host the Grand Prix of Spain on May 5, will be the site of two separate testing periods.
Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya will be the only track that hosts testing for F1. 2016 Pre-season testing periods will run from Feb. 22 – 25 and then March 1 – 4.
Race tickets providers for the Spanish Grand Prix will be given free access to all eight days of pre-season testing, even as tickets can also be purchased on each day at the track.
