The final pre-season Formula 1 test will kick off at the Circuit de Catalunya at Barcelona today. The four-day test is expected to draw every driver in the 22-car grid, with only Force India left to confirm their second driver. The team’s former driver Adrian Sutil has been tipped to reclaim the seat he was forced to vacate after being sued by Lotus F1’s owner Gerard Lopez for attacking him at a Shanghai nightclub during the 2011 Chinese Grand Prix weekend.

The season kicks off with the Australian Grand Prix at Melbourne on the March 15-17 weekend.
