Formula One teams have just under a month to prepare their 2011 cars before testing starts in Valencia. They have 15 days of testing and will not be allowed to test again until the end of the season. This year sees the reintroduction of KERS (Kinetic Energy Recovery System) and the adjustable rear wing, to increase overtaking, so these test will be very important.
