It took place at the Circuit de Catalunya in Montmelo, near Barcelona, Spain between February 28 and March 3. It was the final pre-season test of the year.

All eleven teams are due to attend, and Adrian Sutil drove for Force India after being confirmed in the role.

A first for pre-season testing, the event will be broadcast live on Sky Sports F1.

Kimi Räikkönen was absent on the third day due to a stomach bug, and was replaced by Davide Valsecchi in the morning and Romain Grosjean in the afternoon.
