Ferrari testing in Bahrain

Bahrain kicks off the 2006 season and this week Ferrari has been putting in the miles in what is a four-day test at the Sakhir circuit. Traditionally, Silverstone, Monza and Barcelona are the only Grand Prix circuits in which teams can test at, but there seems to be a deal in place which does allow teams to test in Bahrain over the winter should they chose to do so.

Ferrari has not yet revealed details of the test, but we believe the team are running the V8 engine again in the modified F2004 chassis with both Luca Badoer and Marc Gene on hand. The Bahrain Marathon relay (2005) used part of the circuit of Thursday and photographers were encouraged not to get too close to the Ferrari pits. The Italian squad is the only team to test following the season finale in China with the other nine teams expected to hit the testing trail at the end of the month.
