BWT Alpine F1 Team continued its preparations for the 2023 FIA Formula 1 World Championship as pre-season testing began on Thursday at the Bahrain International Circuit.



The main objective for the team today was to ensure all systems on the A523 worked as expected and to construct a consistent base to work from across the remainder of the test.



Pierre Gasly took driving duties first in the morning session – completing his programme smoothly with 60 laps on the board – with Esteban Ocon in the car for the afternoon-evening session at the 5.412km circuit as he completed 53 laps.



Today marked the A523’s second on-track outing of the season after the team completed its 100km-limited shakedown in Silverstone last week.





Matt Harman, Technical Director, BWT Alpine F1 Team:
“It’s great to be back in Bahrain for pre-season testing, which is a crucial time for all teams in preparing the cars for the season ahead. What is most important across these three days is adding mileage to the board and building a consistent platform to work from in gathering useful data.


We’re satisfied with how our day progressed today with Pierre driving in the morning and Esteban in the afternoon. Our programme focused on characterising our aerodynamic package, understanding the mechanical balance on the car and putting together an accurate and consistent set-up to allow us to continue building our knowledge ahead of the next two days.



All our systems worked as expected, the drivers delivered similar feedback across the sessions and that means we’re in good stead to continue our learning on Friday with Esteban back in the car in the morning and Pierre in the afternoon.”
