Formula 1 will see three pre-season test sessions early in 2013, reportedly all in Spain.

Peter Sauber revealed that his Swiss team's 2013 car, the C32, would be launched on the first day of official pre-season group testing next February 5 at Jerez.


The Italiaracing website said there would be a four-day schedule at the southern Spanish venue before Barcelona hosts the second test of the winter period from February 19-22 and the third over four days from February 28.

The venue, Circuit de Catalunya, confirmed the news.

The third test will conclude on March 3, two weeks ahead of the the 2013 championship's first race in Melbourne, Australia.
