Nestled in the lush green rolling hills near Florence Tuscany in Italy, the Mugello circuit plays host to F1’s in-season test.

The tests kick off May 1st and run through to May 3rd.

Some teams are desperate to test as they try to claw back some pace and competitiveness. Others will take this opportunity to try to make the changes needed to establish themselves as the team to beat. Some may not participate at all in order to save costs and prepare for the next race which is the start of the much-anticipated European round.

This is what has been confirmed thus far. It is subject to change of course.

McLaren is rumoured be interested in participating with Hamilton and possibly Gary Paffett joining. Red Bull and Mercedes have not yet confirmed their plans, but I suspect it won?t be long before we hear an announcement.
