Mercedes, Ferrari, Renault, Racing Point and AlphaTauri have all also held private filming days or tests with old machinery in order to adapt to the new conditions that will be in place this year.
“I’ve been in regular contact with the guys on my side of the garage since Melbourne, so things haven’t changed too much and it was easy to get that understanding again,” said Albon.
“It was also good for everyone to get used to the new COVID-19 protocols and it’s been pretty seamless.
“Overall it was a good opportunity to get back in touch with everything and to get back into that racing mindset.”
Red Bull team boss Christian Horner added that “as a trial run this has been great for the team to enable them to get used to these procedures, which are a little bit foreign, but which are vitally important.
“By the time we get to Austria, these procedures will be the new normal and [the test] ensures that everybody knows what’s expected of them when we get to Austria.
“It’s important for the safety of our team and everyone around us in Formula 1.”
