F1 driver line-up: Barcelona test 2

Formula 1's teams have confirmed their driver line-ups for the second and final pre-season test at the Barcelona circuit.

Just a few days after the opening test concluded, all 11 teams return to action in a bid to fine-tune their cars for Melbourne.

This week's test is likely to take on a different shape to last week, with the focus shifting from reliability and systems checks on to more performance related running.

Expect to see plenty of updates arriving over the course of the week, while both Sauber and Toro Rosso will be running their full 2016 specification cars.

This week should deliver us more answers as to how the battle between Ferrari and Mercedes looks, with the two outfits operating to very different test programmes last week.

Mercedes has again decided to split running on each day with both its drivers, in a bid to ensure Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg are fully fit for the start of the season.

Further down the order, McLaren will be looking for progress from engine partner Honda after a disappointing first week back that was hit by minor reliability issues causing a loss of track running.
