Huge crates filled with F1 teams’ car parts and equipment have already arrived at BIC and the excitement is reaching fever pitch for the first and only on-track running ahead of the 2023 FIA Formula 1 World Championship.

The tests will be open to fans on Friday and Saturday, with the first day’s events on Thursday being held behind closed doors.

Following the completion of the F1 teams’ car and livery launches last week, fans who are eager to get a first glimpse of the 2023 contenders in action can purchase their tickets to the tests at BD5 per day and at half the price at BD2.5 each for children aged 3 to 12.
