El Bahrain International Circuit confirmed this Wednesday that it will host the tests prior to the start of the World Cup F1 of 12 al 14 March, two weeks before also hosting the start of the championship.
"The three-day sessions will be the only time that F1 teams will have the opportunity to put their cars to the test before the start of the 2021 World Cup."He noted the layout on his official Twitter profile.
The circuit of Sakhir It will be the setting this year for these rehearsals, which have traditionally been carried out in Montmeló (Barcelona). The Catalan track was going to host them from March 2 to 4, but the postponement of the Australian Grand Prix and the fact that it is now Bahrain who will open the calendar have motivated the FIA to change its plans.
Before these three days of testing take place, the teams are allowed to put their cars on track in a promotional event with specific tires and a limit of 100 kilometers per hour.
