Formula 1 kicks off its first in-season test today in Barcelona where teams will be hard at work for two days putting their cars and a few new names through their paces.

Absolute rookies Jack Aitken and Jake Dennis will enjoy their first F1 outing in current-spec machines, respectively for Renault and Red Bull.

Nicholas Latifi will get his baptism of fire with Force India, having been sidelined when he was scheduled to drive for the Silverstone-based outfit during F1's pre-season winter test, when the Canadian fell ill.

Oliver Rowland will be in action today for Williams, with Robert Kubica taking over tomorrow.

Sean Gelael takes to the track for Toro Rosso, followed by Pierre Gasly on Wednesday.

One lucky and busy man this week will be Antonio Giovinazzi, the Ferrari junior driving on both days in Barcelona, first with Sauber and then with the Scuderia.

In addition to their regular testing programme, both Force India and McLaren will be running a second car at the Circuit de Catalunya exclusively devoted to Pirelli tyre testing.

Mercedes protégé George Russell will run for the pink outfit on Tuesday while over at McLaren, Oliver Turvey and Lando Norris will share an MCL33 for the day.
