Testing resumes at two venues

Formula 1 teams are back in action today. Williams and Spyker are heading to the Circuit de Catalunya in Spain, with the rest of the field heading to Sakhir in Bahrain.

Many people, including tyre manufacturer Bridgestone, have questioned the sense in Spyker and Williams running solo, however Bridgestone have stressed that all shareable data will be given to all teams, regardless of where they are testing. With the new season less than three weeks away, it is surprising that the two teams did not want to run alongside the rest of the competition.
