This week’s preseason test marks the first time that the 2017 F1 cars have been out on track.

F1 underwent a lot of changes during the season. The sport itself even changed hands with new owners Liberty Media taking charge.

One area where F1’s new owners hope to improve the sport is in the realm of social media. Prior to 2017, F1 teams were very limited on what they could post to social media during the course of a weekend. Videos from inside the track were not allowed.

However, for this weekend’s tests, Liberty Media has allowed the teams to post short videos of some of the action from the track. Here were the results.
