The highly-anticipated 2022 challengers took to the track in Barcelona for the unofficial start of pre-season testing.

While the official test is in Bahrain from March 10-12, the teams descended on the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya for an equally important three-day outing, as their new-look 2022 cars were put into extended action for the first time.

That meant more track time for some than others, with a real mixed bag on the reliability front, while we also got our first feel for the lap times achievable in these ground effect 2022 cars.
