April in Bahrain, between 1 and 2 August in Budapest and at the end of the year between 28 and 29 November in Abu Dhabi.
In Bahrain, official testing will be carried out for the first time since 2014, as this term replaces the term used in Barcelona for many years. Testing at the Budapest racetrack is also a novelty. They will take place immediately after the race on July 30th.
