Next year’s calendar begins with pre-season testing at the Bahrain International Circuit on 21-23 February, the first chance for the drivers to get behind their brand new machines after countless hours in the simulator.
The 24-race season officially kicks off the following weekend, a double-header in the Middle East with Bahrain (February 29-March 2) and Saudi Arabia (March 7-9).
The winter break feels like an eternity for F1 fans and Williams were able to capture that feeling with their number one driver Albon.
They posted a picture on X of the 27-year-old with his head in his hands starring aimlessly into the camera, with one fan commenting that it captured the “sheer unbridled depression” of every F1 fan during the more than two month waiting period for the return of racing action.
