Who is in action where over the coming days...

No test track can imitate the unique nature of Monte Carlo’s street circuit, but that doesn’t mean the teams won’t be hard at work this week in preparation for the forthcoming Monaco Grand Prix.

Paul Ricard is the main venue for this week’s testing activity, with Williams, Toyota, McLaren, Renault and Ferrari all expected at the French circuit, which hosts a four-day session commencing on Tuesday.

Williams will run all four days, with Spanish tester Marc Gene and Brazilian counterpart Antonio Pizzonia in the cockpit on Tuesday and Wednesday. Juan Pablo Montoya partners Gene in the FW26 on Thursday, while Friday’s line-up for the BMW-powered team is Montoya and Pizzonia.

Toyota will have Ricardo Zonta and Olivier Panis continuing development of the TF104 for the opening two days, with Cristiano da Matta taking over for the final two. McLaren, meanwhile, will field Alexander Wurz and Pedro de la Rosa on Tuesday and Wednesday and then David Coulthard and Kimi Raikkonen on Thursday and Friday.

Renault are scheduled to test at Ricard from Wednesday through Friday, with Jarno Trulli and Franck Montagny heading their programme with the R24. Ferrari are also expected to run three days at the track, from Tuesday to Thursday. The world champions are also due to test in private at Mugello and Fiorano.

Fresh from their season-best result in Spain at the weekend, Sauber have three days of work planned at Britain’s Silverstone circuit from Tuesday. They may be joined by fellow Bridgestone runners Jordan on the Wednesday and Thursday.

Note, all schedules are provisional and remain subject to change.
