We're off to see the Wizard

With less than two weeks to go until the start of the Australian Grand Prix race weekend, the teams are already starting to pack up and freight their equipment to Melbourne.

Most teams personnel, drivers and cars were headed back to their respective team headquarters in Europe. However some items were set for a much longer journey.

Here's a sneaky shot taken on the last day of pre-season testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. It shows Red Bull getting a head start on shipping out their cargo to Melbourne.
