Shakedown :

A shakedown is where the team run the car for the first time to make sure that the car is mechanically sound, that all the various systems are in place and everything is working as expected. At the same time, the team ensures the driver is comfortable in the car.

Shakedowns are usually held behind closed doors and with camouflage-style livery to disguise aero features.
