The final day of pre-season running in Barcelona will see the drivers test Pirelli's 2022 wet and intermediate tyres on an artificially soaked track.

Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya has hosted the first pre-season sessions of 2022, but the third and final day will see F1's official tyre suppliers, Pirelli, test their 18-inch wet compounds.

They will soak the circuit artificially, the chance of rain hovering at around 20% on Friday, with teams expected to be able to run blue-banded wet and green-banded intermediate compounds in the afternoon.
