Barcelona to hold final tests

The final pre-season winter tests were scheduled to take place in Bahrain from the 3rd March. However, due to the current situation in the country, the tests will now take place at the Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, following the cancellation of the Bahrain Grand Prix. The final test will now take place from March 8th to 11th, two weeks before the start of the season in Australia. Williams’ CEO Adam Parr said "It is obviously disappointing for everyone involved in the organisation of the event, but it is clear that to race in Bahrain at this time would be inappropriate given the current circumstances. It is always Williams' intention to contribute positively to the countries we compete in and so we fully support the Crown Prince's decision to cancel the test and forthcoming Bahrain Grand Prix. We now look forward to a season debut in Melbourne and returning to Bahrain when it is right to do so." The decision does mean though that the teams won’t be unable to test Pirelli's tyres in hot conditions before they travel to Melbourne.
