The Wednesday schedule was reported on the F1 website here: https://www.formula1.com/en/latest/a...lACq23NnF.html

The rest of the schedule I found on other F1 news specific sites. Here's a link to a reputable site with the info: https://www.racefans.net/2020/02/18/...-test-of-2020/

Thanks!! Buried in articles of course. Would be nice if they (F1) just had a link in their schedule section of the site for specifics.

Bear in mind it's not quali..so the fastest lapper won't necessarily be the one with overall pace.

great to see F1 cars back on track especially on sunset..

1.2 seconds faster than last year's day 1 test's fastest time by Hamilton.. and seems like Merc' is still down on top speed that seen on speed traps..and its great to see midfield is quite cranked up for this year.. and probably most of the track records will be broken this year before cars will slow down next year..

Ferrari seems having some problems that affected Lerlerc's day quite a lot..
even he lapped more than 120 laps not much positivity from Ferrari garage..
Red Bull and more precisely Max had more than 160 laps and when you think race distance is 66 laps.. its insane..

Magnussen had a weird spin and Max had 3 nervy moments..
and Honda engines were sounding like they coughing on the straights.. that doesnt sound normal at least for me..

and here comes a conspiracy theory..
maybe Ferrari affected from 2nd fuel flow meter that teams can not touch.. only FIA can inspect.. and maybe that means, Ferrari can not push more fuel into engine when needed.. can it be?

Maybe the honda engine coughing on the straight is their set limit to not show their true speed. Sort of like fuel cut.

Max’s run shows excellent honda reliability. As does Merc’s, but that’s expected of them.

could be but that coughing starts while still accelerating..
i guess all engines are on their peak level in terms of reliability this year but it seems Racing Point will really become a pink Merc this season.. they re looking strong so far..

It seems that Racing Point is running the W10 with a modified livery!!

In an interview during testing they said they don’t have a deal with Merc so they really just copied the car.

A Ferrari insider posted on Instagram that the team is confident about their one lap times that they're only concentrating on race pace and heavy fuel load testing now because that was their weakness last year. I sure hope that's the case but as a Ferrari fan the numbers I see so far (although analysis is premature at this point) definitely scare me.

I wouldnt worry too much. There are so many variables during testing that you cant really compare the times between the teams. Not to mention Ferrari looked really quick last year during testing and failed to deliver. Its better to under promise and over deliver, especially in the case of Ferrari given how much the Italian media is invested in them.

Although you cant read too much into any of the numbers, I am sure glad that we are seeing Williams running out there with times consistently lower then their quali times last year. Good on them, hopefully we can see them in the midfield mix again.
