The 2018 pre-season test days are now complete and the next time we see cars out on track it will be for the Australian GP weekend. The pre-season testing gives teams the chance to analyse their car performance and make changes ahead of the first race, and guess what – yes, it also helps YOU with your Fantasy GP team! How nice of them.

So here you are, the important time sheets and data from the winter testing at Barcelona. This is for all the data junkies out there. In overview we have data from 8 days with 2 test sessions at 1 track with 37,148km covered over 7978 laps.
