D ie preparations for the 2016 Formula 1 season entered the hot phase on Friday. For the last day of testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya, the engineers of all teams had planned an extensive program again so as not to experience any nasty surprises at the first race in Australia.

There were again many vans that night Arrived in the paddock with new parts to be tried out at the last minute. Many teams also planned racing simulations in which stability was checked. And as always on the last day of the test, qualifying simulations on soft tires were also part of the program.
