Algarve International Racetrack to host F1 testing

The Algarve International Racetrack (AIA) in Portimão is due to welcome a series of F1 tests, SIC television channel reports today.

The tests are due to take place on July 11, 12, 13, 18 and 19 and will be attended by at least one team, it adds.

This will be the second time the racetrack hosts F1 test runs after January 2009.

Portimão has also hosted two F1 GPs in 2020 and 2021, having acted as a replacement racetrack. However, it was left out of the 2022 calendar.
