Right hello guys, it's that time of year again where we all will be getting excited about pre-season testing.

Well with 6 out of the 12 teams to have launched their cars already we see the rest hopefully come together tomorrow.

I have to admit that my favourite 2 of the launches so far are the Force India and the Mclaren and i'm not even been biast here!

Here is what i believe the line-up's will be for the 4 days:

Team Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
Sauber Kobayashi/ Perez/ Perez/ Kobayashi
Ferrari Massa/ Massa/ Alonso/ Alonso
Force India di Resta/ di Resta/ Hulkenberg/ Hulkenberg
Caterham Kovalainen/ Kovalainen/ Garde/ Trulli
McLaren Button/ Button/ Hamilton/ Hamilton
Mercedes Rosberg/Schumacher/ Schumacher/ Rosberg/ TBC
Red Bull Webber/ Webber/ Vettel/ Vettel
Lotus Raikkonen/ Raikkonen/ Grosjean/ Grosjean
Toro Rosso Ricciardo/ Ricciardo/ Vergne/ Vergne
Williams Maldonado/ Maldonado/ Senna/ Senna
HRT de la Rosa/ de la Rosa/ TBC/ TBC

TBC - To be confirmed.

But the good news is apart for Marussia we've almost got a full got a full line-up for testing. Marussia are said to be joining in for the next test.

So who's looking forward to this then?

How time flies! Really looking forward to this, first time the cars on track and whatnot, although it's hard to read into anything after the first test, whats the weather supposed to be like for the test?

Hammy as far as I can see Mercedes aren't running in this test. In fact they're not even scheduled to launch their car until the 21st. I think that dates right.

Your absolutely right. My mistake. They are running the 2011 car though so its meaningless to measure them against any of the other teams. We will know more when they arrive at the next test with their new car.

What Lotus/Raikkonen are doing is very impressive, they already seem to be doing decent length stints at a pace comparable to last year's best times. It doesn't mean they're going to be championship contenders, obviously, but they certainly seem to have a reliable car that they understand straight out of the box.
