Three rounds down in 2024 and ahead of Round 4 in Imola, Formula 2 returns to the track for three days of in-season testing. Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya hosts what many expect to be a pivotal run out for the entirety of the grid.

Running from Tuesday to Thursday, teams and drivers will get the opportunity to trial new setups and work out the kinks from the early phase of the 2024 campaign. Who will head to Imola in the best shape? All the action from each day of testing will be covered online and via the FIA Formula 2 social media.


Three days of running from April 23-25 will take place around the familiar venue in Barcelona, with six hours of track time on each day giving teams and drivers plenty of time to log mileage.

The sessions on days one and two will run from 09:00 to 12:00 local time and 14:00 to 17:00 local time. Day three will run with a slightly altered timetable in the afternoon, with the PM session commencing at 13:00 and finishing at 16:00 local time.

Teams will have access to five sets of the white-walled hards and three sets of the red-marked soft compounds of Pirelli tyres, along with three sets of wet tyres, should the weather require, apiece for each driver.

  • Rodin Motorsport lead the way in both the Teams’ and Drivers' Championships, with Zane Maloney heading the way on 62 points.

  • Hitech Pulse-Eight’s Paul Aron is currently the highest-placed rookie driver in the Championship, second to Maloney on 47 points having taken three podiums so far this year.

  • Enzo Fittipaldi is the only driver to have secured more than one fastest lap this season. The Van Amersfoort Racing driver achieved the feat in the Sakhir Sprint and Jeddah Feature Races.

  • Roman Stanek is the newest Formula 2 winner in the Championship, winning the Melbourne Sprint Race for Trident.

  • Gabriel Bortoleto is the only rookie in 2024 to have achieved pole position. The Invicta Racing driver inherited the top spot after teammate Kush Maini was disqualified in Bahrain.

  • Maini ended the morning sessions of Days 1 and 2 as the quickest driver in the 2023 in-season test. Jack Doohan was the fastest driver in the afternoon for Invicta last season on Days 1 and 2.

  • Théo Pourchaire was the fastest driver overall last year at the same event, finishing top for ART Grand Prix with a 1:23.943.


Each day will be available to follow via live timing on the official FIA Formula 2 website. Reports will be online at the end of each test day, along with driver and team reactions from Barcelona.
