OK so we know it’s called Winter Testing but this just take things a little too far. Yesterday’s test at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya was done in temperatures of 0°C but today things got even worse as snow fell at the circuit, delaying the morning session.
As always though, interesting weather makes for some great social media posts!

We wait to see when testing actually gets underway but it doesn’t look like it’s going to be any time soon and with the weather predicted as is, it may not be the only time F1 testing gets disrupted.
