Formula 1 teams confirm first test line-ups
Date published: February 17 2019
With testing set to get underway on Monday at Circuit de Catalunya in Barcelona, the 10 teams on the grid have now confirmed their line-ups.
Mercedes will have both their drivers on duty throughout Monday, a theme which continues for the full four days of the first test.
Lewis Hamilton will get proceedings underway on Monday morning, before handing the car over to team-mate Valtteri Bottas.
Renault will follow the same approach, where Daniel Ricciardo and Nico Hulkenberg will alternate between morning and afternoon stints.
Williams and Haas are the only teams set to use their reserve drivers, with Haas’ Pietro Fittipaldi and Williams’ Nicholas Latifi set for a good stint on-track.
The weather is set fine for the full week, meaning a repeat of last season’s freezing conditions is not on the cards.
