We assess every team’s performance from the first pre-season Formula 1 test in the latest episode of The Race F1 Podcast.

Scott Mitchell and Gary Anderson join Edd Straw to tell you everything you need to know about goings on at Barcelona and interpret the lap times to get hints about their pace.

With Mercedes and Red Bull occupying the top positions on the timesheets, is it going to be more of the same in 2022, or have McLaren or Ferrari take a step forward?

Aston Martin and Alpine were in the middle of the times, but how costly was Pierre Gasly’s final-day accident and what can be read into Sebastian Vettel’s last-day pace?

With Williams having a low profile test, it was left to Alpine, Haas and Alfa Romeo to sit at the bottom of the timesheets. We explain what went wrong and what, unseen, went right for those teams.

And with Haas, sponsor Uralkali and Nikita Mazepin the subject of frenzied speculation, we explain what is going on behind the scenes in terms of the future of team and driver.
