Formula 1 testing continues as the teams head to Bahrain for their final preparations before the new season.

Teams spent three days shaking down their new cars in Barcelona at the end of last month but the full focus turns to Bahrain with the second test being shown live on TV.

With the first race of the season taking place in Bahrain, this test will be especially important for the teams in understanding their new machines and the new 18-inch tyres.

Warmer temperatures, sandy conditions and driving under the lights - the three days of testing should be an exciting watch.

Ferrari and McLaren have started the season strongly, but Mercedes and Red Bull are expected to be introducing significant upgrades for Bahrain ahead of the new season.

Alpine and Aston Martin went under the radar in the first test, while Alfa Romeo and Haas needs more mileage.

Teams will divide the schedules up into morning (AM) and afternoon (PM) sessions, or even in some cases, give one driver the entire day. 

Running begins in Bahrain at 0700 GMT and finishes at 1600 GMT over three days - Thursday, March 10 to Saturday, March 12.
