Formula 1 Pre-Season Testing 2014: Times, News, Reports and More from Bahrain

The 2014 Formula One season moves another step closer when the teams travel to Bahrain for the second of the year's pre-season tests.

The drivers and teams have four more days to get to know their new cars, and there's plenty to learn.

The rules of F1 have been altered substantially for this campaign.

From a design perspective, the change to V6 turbo-charged engines from last year's V8s is probably the most significant. For the less technically minded, the nose height laws are possibly providing the biggest talking point, with the teams designing some interestingly shaped fronts to their cars to fit in with the restrictions.

A full breakdown of the changes for this season can be seen on Inquirer.net.

In the first test in Jerez, Spain, Mercedes and cars running Mercedes engines looked well-placed. Meanwhile, the Renault teams—and Red Bull in particular—looked decidedly uncomfortable. 

However, it is in Bahrain that we may see the first moves away from testing reliability to testing true pace.

Here are session-by-session breakdowns from the event, including updates and tweets from the track.
