Given the teams will have just three days to run and not a lot of time after to ensure their cars are in excellent condition to start the season, the time on track will be absolutely crucial.
This means that while headline laptimes will be interesting to glance at, an ideal scenario for teams will instead be on running with minimal reliability issues and being able to put in as many laps as possible.
This will ensure they can collect data and understand their 2024 designs as they hit the track for the first time.
