Pirelli F1 announces schedule of 18-inch tyre testing in preparation of the 2022 season

Pirelli F1 has announced their full schedule of the new 18-inch tyre car testing in preparation of the 2022 season, with Williams the only team not participating.

Pirelli F1 have finalized a seven-month long schedule for the testing of their 18-inch tyres. The feedback from the nine teams participating would help them in preparing the rubber for the 2022 season.

Ferrari led from the front, doing the first round of testing in Jerez – former home of Spanish Grand Prix – with Charles Leclerc and newbie Carlos Sainz. The tests were carried out with the slick and wet tyres, spread over three days.

Ferrari will do two more days, one each in Bahrain and Hungary. Like Ferrari, Mercedes and Alpine will do the testing across five days. Williams, meanwhile, are not going to be a part of the exercise at all.
