Pre-season F1 testing has now also been confirmed, and will take place over three days at the Bahrain International Circuit, from February 23 to 25.
There will be just a 1-week gap from testing to the first race. If a team has a major design flaw, there will be no time to make design changes before the season begins. Poor planning, but the teams had to approve it, so best of luck that all 10 teams get their designs correct.
See updated calendar below.
