Following a weekend break, the Formula 1 teams will return to the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya on Tuesday for the second four-day pre-season test.

With each permitted to run one car, all have opted to mix and match their regular drivers across the four days’ running. Mercedes AMG Petronas and Renault Sport will split each day between their two lead drivers, while to a lesser extent Williams Racing has also opted for a similar approach.

The sole change across the teams’ line-ups is that Pascal Wehrlein has been declared fit to return to action after being ruled out of the first pre-season test with a neck injury he sustained in a crash at the Race of Champions. The German will have just two days of pre-season running in the Sauber C36.

The circuit will be open from 09:00 to 18:00 CET (GMT +1), with a mandatory one-hour lunch break at 13:00.

The provisional driver line-ups confirmed by the teams reads as follows:
