Due to the adjustment of the calendar of the Formula 1 season and the postponement of the Australian Grand Prix from March 21 to November 21, the teams agreed on new dates and location for the pre-season tests – instead of Barcelona, tests will be held in Bahrain from March 12 to 14, two weeks before the start of the championship.
Thanks to this decision, the teams will have more time to build cars – if for tests in Barcelona the teams had to send cars to the track at the end of February, then in the case of Bahrain, these terms are shifted by about a week.
Warm weather can be attributed to the advantages of tests in Bahrain, while frosts are not excluded in Barcelona in early March. The disadvantages include the remoteness of the Sakhir highway from European bases – if necessary, the delivery of spare parts will take much longer.
In 2014, Bahrain has already hosted two of the three pre-season test sessions.
