Renault, Williams and Haas are all completing a shakedown and filming day with their respective 2020 Formula 1 cars at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya ahead of the start of pre-season testing.

Fresh from revealing the FW43, Williams has made its track debut with George Russell completing the first laps with the new car at the Spanish Grand Prix venue.

In a joint arrangement between the three teams, each squad is undertaking a shakedown and one of its permitted two filming days with its 2020 F1 car.

It marks the first glimpses of both the Haas VF20 and the Renault R.S.20, following the US team’s car livery reveal earlier this month while the French manufacturer only revealed teaser shots of its 2020 F1 car at its launch in Paris last Wednesday.

Each F1 team is allowed to complete a maximum of 100km of running per filming day which are held outside of tests or race weekends.

Last week Red Bull (Wednesday) and Mercedes (Friday) completed their respective shakedowns at Silverstone, while Alfa Romeo ran its at Ferrari’s private Fiorano test track on Friday.

Following the launch of the new-look AlphaTauri in Salzburg last Friday, the team formerly known as Toro Rosso flew to Misano to conduct its shakedown and filming day on Saturday.

McLaren completed a private shakedown of its MCL35 at Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Sunday.

F1 pre-season testing gets underway at the Spanish circuit on February 19.
