2019 Barcelona Test 2

The 2019 Barcelona Test 1, otherwise known as the 2019 Pre-season Test 1, was the first of two pre-season tests for the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship, staged at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya between the 18 and 21 February 2019.[1] The test would see all ten entrants for the 2019 season take part, although Williams notably arrived late after delays building their new car, the FW42.[2]

Renault driver Nico Hülkenberg would set the fastest time across the four days of running, recording a 1:17.393 on the fourth and final afternoon.[3] The German's compatriot Sebastian Vettel, meanwhile, would set the most number of laps of any driver across the four days, completing 303 tours of the Barcelona circuit for Ferrari.

Indeed, it was Vettel and teammate Charles Leclerc who would set the pace during the first two days, topping the charts on Monday and Tuesday with a 1:18.161 and 1:18.247.[4][5] Daniil Kvyat would then cause a stir as he put the Honda engined Toro Rosso at the top of the charts on Wednesday, claiming a 1:17.704, before Hülkenberg topped the times on Thursday.[6][3]

Ferrari would top the test charts in terms of distance covered with Vettel and Leclerc recording 591 laps between them, a distance of 2,751.105 km (1,709.457 mi), having run trouble free throughout the four day test. At the other end of the scale Williams would cover the least distance, mustering just 83 laps after missing more than half of the test.[7]

BackgroundEdit

The annual pre-seasons test for the 2019 edition of the FIA Formula One World Championship were staged on familiar ground, with the F1 field conveining at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya in mid-February.[1] The test would effectively serve as the season launch for F1, with all ten teams publically debuting their cars, barring a few whom had conducted some pre-test photo shoots.[8] The test would also see the first official running of the 2019-spec cars, with several significant changes made to the design made over the winter due to changes in the rulebook.

Aero AdjustmentsEdit

The biggest feature of the 2019 F1 regulations would be the front wings, with increased restrictions on how many winglets.[9] The new design limited the number of elements on the wing to a maximum of seven, while also limiting the teams to two deflectors to push air over the car.[9] It was hoped that the new design would allow cars to follow one-another better, at the expense of slower lap times.[9][10]

Elsewhere there were also modifications to the rear wing, which was to be increased in size by 100mm, with the DRS slot also expanded by 20mm.[9] These changes would effectively ensure that a car would punch a bigger hole through the air, increasing the effects of slipstreaming, while the 25% increase in DRS would also enhance the influence of the overtaking aid.[9] There were also reductions to the size of barge boards and brake ducts, reducing their aerodynamic effectiveness, as well as a marginal increase in weight to 740 kg including the driver.[9]

Winter WanderingsEdit

The winter after the 2018 season had seen a vast array of driver changes too, with only two teams, Mercedes and Haas-Ferrari retaining the same pair of drivers that had raced for them in 2018.[11][12][13] For Mercedes, defending World Champion Lewis Hamilton would lead the line alongside Valtteri Bottas for a third consecutive season, while Haas partnered Romain Grosjean and Kevin Magnussen together once again.[11][13] There would, however, be changes to their test/reserve drivers, with Mercedes taking Esteban Ocon, while Pietro Fittipaldi would join Haas with the added bonus of a few run outs in the pre-season tests.[14][15]

At the other end of the spectrum, Williams-Mercedes and Toro Rosso-Honda would start the season with completely different driver line-ups, drafting in two old-F1 hands, and two FIA Formula 2 Championship stars between them. Williams would hire Mercedes protege and FIA F2 Champion George Russell to lead their team, partnering him with former F1 ace Robert Kubica, in spite of the Polish racer's extensive hand impairments.[16][17] Toro Rosso, meanwhile, would sign up former driver Daniil Kvyat to lead their team, while also hiring Russell's former F2 rival Alexander Albon, who would become the first Thai registered driver to race in F1 since the infamous Prince Bira in the 1950s.[18][19]

Lando Norris

Lando Norris was catapulted into the full McLaren-Renault team in 2019.

Likewise, McLaren-Renault had opted to completely change their driver line-up, for Fernando Alonso had retired, while Stoffel Vandoorne had lost the support of the team.[20] To replace the Spaniard, the McLaren team drafted in Carlos Sainz, Jr. from the factory Renault, with Sainz widely considered to be Alonso's protege having been a fan of his compatriot growing up.[21] The second McLaren seat, meanwhile, would go to a McLaren Young Driver Programme product Lando Norris, with the Brit having finished second in the 2018 F2 Championship to Russell after a season long challenge.[22]

A fourth revitalised team would be the Sauber squad, which would be officially renamed as Alfa Romeo Racing on both the entry list and as a constructor after an extension of the deal between Sauber and Alfa owners FIAT.[23] They duly hired Ferrari backed youngster Antonio Giovinazzi, who had previously raced for the team in 2017, under the terms of the contract which required that Sauber take on a Ferrari driver if the Italian team requested it.[24] Their second seat, meanwhile, would also go to one of their former drivers, with 2007 World Champion Kimi Räikkönen moving back to the team with whom he had made his F1 debut in 2001.[25]

Räikkönen's former employers Ferrari, meanwhile, would opt to replace the Finn with one of Sauber's 2018 drivers, drafting in Charles Leclerc to partner Sebastian Vettel for the season.[26][27] Indeed, LecLerc had been groomed to join the Ferrari team since his days in the FIA Formula 3 European Championship, and duly joined ahead of a major restructuring of the team, which saw Team Principle Maurizio Arrivabene replaced by Mattia Binotto.[28] There would also be a significant investigation into Ferrari's major sponsors Philip Morris, owners of the Marlboro brand of tobacco, with their "Mission Winnow" scheme becoming a title sponsor of the Scuderia.[29]

Another team using their "junior" team as a source of driving talent would be Red Bull, who drafted in Pierre Gasly to join Max Verstappen for the campaign.[30][31] Indeed, it was to be a season of partial unknowns for the Red Bull squad, with the Austrian team also committing to a multi-season deal with Honda as their engine supplier, in-spite of Japanese firm's infamous lack of reliability since 2015.[32] While Red Bull remained optimistic about the potential of the Honda design, only time would tell as to whether the "Red Bull-Honda" deal would be a dream come true or a project doomed to failure.

Elsewhere the factory Renault team would poach a former Red Bull driver to replace Sainz, signing Daniel Ricciardo after the Australian racer opted to leave the Austrian team after the move to make Verstappen the team's number one driver.[33] He would join Renault's lead driver Nico Hülkenberg at the team, with many believing that 2019 would be the season in which the German's career would be made or broken given Riccardo's position as one of the best drivers in the field.[33] Completing the entry would be Racing Point, forged from the ashes of Force India, which would field Sergio Pérez and Lance Stroll, the son of owner Lawrence, for the 2019 season.[34][35]
