Sad news has emerged, with earlier reports that Portugal’s spectacular Autódromo The Portimão circuit has apparently been dropped from the pre-season testing schedule Internacional do Algarve circuit at Portimão would join the pre-season testing schedule have proven to be incorrect.

AUTOSPORT had reported earlier this month that the undulating high-speed circuit would join the list of pre-season testing venues in addition to the ubiquitous Spanish venues, such as Jerez and the Circuit de Catalunya.

But reports within the Finnish and Italian press claim that the pre-season test scheduled have been finalised, with the roster appearing as follows:

Ricardo Tormo circuit, Valencia 1-3 February
Circuit de Jerez 10-13 February
Circuit de Catalunya, Barcelona 18-21 February
Sakhir International Circuit, Bahrain 3-6 March
