2011 Formula 1 testing begins in Spain:
Testing for the 2011 Formula 1 season started in Valencia. Have a look at new cars from Red Bull, Toro Rosso, Mercedes, Sauber and Williams. Someteams ran interim cars which you can easily recognize by the blown rear wing tunnel, banned in 2011.
The surprise was Bruno Senna appearing as a Lotus Renault (the black and gold one) reserve driver.
Alonso topped the first session times followed Vettel and Nico Hulkenberg testing the Force India.
