10.02.2012 Jerez, Spain - Jarno Trulli (ITA), Caterham CT01 - Formula1 World Championship Pre-Season Testing - Jerez de la Frontera +++ © Copyright: Stange / RACE-PRESS.comDec.10 (GMM) There will be three Formula One tests prior to the 2013 season, reportedly. As has become tradition, they will all be in Spain.

Peter Sauber revealed last week that the Swiss team’s 2013 car, the C32, will be launched on the first day of official pre-season group testing next February 5th, at Jerez.

The Italiaracing website said that this will be a four-day test scheduled at the southern Spanish venue, before Barcelona hosts the second test of the winter period between February 19 and 22.

Barcelona will also host the third and final pre-2013 season test, again over four days, beginning on February 28.

The venue, Circuit de Catalunya, confirmed the news.

The third test will conclude on 3 March, precisely two weeks before the 2013 championship kicks off in Melbourne.
