F1 2022 testing: day three results, driver schedule and how can I watch Barcelona’s pre-season on TV today?


he third and final day of the Barcelona leg of F1 pre-season testing is upon us, with all 20 drivers ready to hit the track on Friday.

Charles Leclerc was quickest for Ferrari on day two, with McLaren starting the week on top thanks to Briton Lando Norris.

Nikita Mazepin will drive for Haas on Friday, but the team has removed Russian sponsor Uralkali’s branding from its car and will use an all-white livery following Russia’s invasion of Ukraine.

Two tests will take place before the first Bahrain Grand Prix, this will be the first opportunity for fans to experience the new cars after a major overhaul of the rules.

Much attention will also be given to Lewis Hamilton after his heartbreak in Abu Dhabi. Having declared himself ready to fight for a record eighth title against defending champion Max Verstappen, any early signs of superiority will no doubt be examined.

And then there’s the chance of an unexpected favorite emerging, perhaps McLaren or Ferrari, this season brimming with intrigue for fans.

Here’s everything you need to know ahead of the Barcelona test…
