Although the official winter testing only kicks off on Wednesday, the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya experienced a busy morning with three teams completing their filming day.
All ten teams will be in action at Barcelona on Wednesday when the congested pre-season testing commences. However, the favoured grand prix track was occupied yesterday by McLaren that completed its filming day on a beautiful sunny day. Today, the track continued to provide action with three teams working at the same time.
Rokit Williams Racing has only released photos of its new car, the FW43 on Monday morning, but it did not waste time in getting the car out on track. After his seat fitting back at the Grove factory on Sunday, George Russell flew to Barcelona to get behind the wheel of the new FW43.
The British squad was joined by Renault. At an awkward launch, the French manufacturer's team principal Cyril Abiteboul and the drivers Esteban Ocon and Daniel Ricciardo spoke about the outift' expectations for the forthcoming season last week, albeit the most important 'tool', the squad's 2020 F1 car was missing.
However, Renault's new driver Esteban Ocon gave the RS20 its track debut today.
Formula One's American team, Haas was also in action at Barcelona today. It was the honour of Romain Grosjean to take the new VF-20 out for several shakedown runs. The team returned to its traditional colour scheme of grey, red and black for 2020, a year in which they want to relieve their previous impressive form after the disappointing 2019 season.
