Barcelona F1 testing
[18 Jan 2005]
Formula 1 testing began today at the Circuit de Catalunya at Barcelona. There had been some doubts about the tests after BAR's launch from the weekend when it was discovered the newly laid asphalt was very slippery and dusty. Some teams such as BAR, Sauber and Renault decided to move to Valencia insted. However, Ferrari, Williams, Toyota and Red Bull started today at Barcelona. The track conditions improved through out the day. Michael Schumacher also got back behind the wheel and clocked the fastest time with a 1:15.461. He drove 2004 spec car.
