Silverstone loses in-season test to Hungary

Date published: January 26 2017 - Editor

This season’s two in-season tests will take place in Bahrain and Hungary with Silverstone missing out.

Under the sport’s regulations, teams can take part in two two-day tests during the season with the Sakhir circuit and the Hungaroring playing hosts this season.

The first test, Bahrain, will take place April 18-19 while the second will be held in early August – and it couldĀ prove to be a big test with the bookmaker luckia.

The newly released schedule means Silverstone loses out for only the second time since the in-season tests returned to Formula 1.

Meanwhile Abu Dhabi will hold a two-day outing in the wake of the season that will be focused solely on tyre testing for 2018.
