Formula 1 teams have agreed to scrap the mid-season test for 2013 and beyond after concluding it offered very little benefit.
Mid-season testing had been reintroduced this season with a single three-day test taking place prior to the European leg of the season.
However, the teams have agreed that the expenditure to run their cars for an additional three days wasn't offset by the benefits.
Three pre-season tests, one in Jerez and two in Barcelona, will remain for 2013.
Jerez is likely to host the first four-days of testing on February 5th, 6th, 7th and 8th. Whilst two tests in Barcelona will take place between February 19-22 and February 28th to March 3rd.
