F1 Fanatic at 2017 pre-season testing
It’s been a hectic 48 hours back and forth from the launches of the new Force India and Mercedes. But the excitement will go up several notches next week as the cars hit the track in anger for the first time in pre-season testing.
All ten teams will be in action with their new cars at the Circuit de Catalunya. F1 Fanatic will be there on every day of the test to bring you live lap-by-lap updates, pictures of the dramatic new cars and the first word from the drivers on how Formula One’s latest rules overhaul is going to change the sport.
