The second pre-season test starts on Wednesday at Sakhir, Bahrain, where teams will start aerodynamic development on top of further drivetrain verification and improvements.

Renault of course will be in the centre of attention after its numerous reliability problems that plagued all its customer teams 2 weeks ago at Jerez. Since then, teams and the manufacturer have worked feverishly to resolve issues, with Renault claiming it is confident that the problems which prevented running at Jerez have been resolved.

The Bahrain test takes place from Wednesday to Saturday, with the track open for running between 9am and 5pm (GMT+3)
