Jerez, 2013Testing for the 2013 season begins today. All 11 teams have assembled at the Circuito de Jerez in Spain for the first of three four-day tests.

I’m at the track to follow the test as it unfolds. I’ll be posting updates via Twitter on F1 Fanatic Live below, and I’ll also be joining in the discussion when I can.

Today will also see the launch of the Caterham CT03 and the Marussia MR02 prior to the start of testing.
