There’s no time to rest for the 2023 Formula 3 grid. Four days after completing testing in Barcelona, the field are back out on track for their second in-season test at Imola.
Starting on Tuesday, the two days of running will be the drivers and teams’ final opportunity to embed their learnings and continue their preparations ahead of the start of the European phase of the season, which commences at the Italian circuit in May.
WHAT TO EXPECT
Running 18-19 April, each day of the official two-day test will once again be split into morning and afternoon sessions. Both days of morning running will get underway at 09:00 and end at noon. On Tuesday, the afternoon session will start at 14:00 and end at 17:00, whilst on Friday, running will take place from 13:30 to 16:30 (GMT +2).
Each car will have six sets of the yellow-walled Pirelli medium tyres to play with, plus three sets of wet tyres. This is the same compound that will be used for the Championship’s return to the venue on May 19-21.
Hunter Yeany will be absent from the opening day of testing, but the American driver will get back behind the wheel of the #21 Rodin Carlin car for Day 2.
LAST TIME OUT
WHERE TO FOLLOW
You can follow along with testing on the official FIA F3 website via live timing. End-of-day reports will follow the chequered flag on both days, as well as driver reactions.
