Norris opens second Barcelona test on top; trouble for Mercedes and Ferrari

Bottas talks fact Ferrari quicker than Mercedes

Bottas talks fact Ferrari quicker than Mercedes

One of the earlier red flags was also caused by Norris when his vehicle lost hydraulic pressure at Turn 3 and the other was caused by Valtteri Bottas' Mercedes stopping on track with a loss of oil pressure, which resulted in a lengthily engine change and limited the Finn to just a handful in the afternoon.

However the team also had two stoppages during the day's running.

An oil pressure problem was to blame, but rather than risk a hugely expensive power unit, Mercedes opted to spend most of the afternoon bolting a new power unit onto the Mercedes.

"We got through our run programme and the auto was feeling relatively good".

Norris was left stranded on the side of the track in the morning session, halted by a hydraulic pressure issue while McLaren had yet to determine the cause of the cat's second failure. "We have to continue to analyse everything and keep pushing", commented Hamilton.

Problems for Mercedes Mercedes did little to trouble the top of the timesheets last week and today looked as if it would be no different as they brought a noticeably different aero package with them this week.

Lewis Hamilton had a productive morning in a heavily updated Mercedes W10 which featured a revised nose, front wing and engine cover. Gasly's 1:17.715 is the fastest lap we've seen on the C3s during pre-season and came on a short five-lap run that alternated between push laps and cooldown laps, similar to a qualifying run.

While Leclerc only managed 29 laps, Sebastian Vettel took over in the afternoon and added a further 81 to the total to finish up fourth fastest on the C3 compound, a little over 0.2s slower than Norris and Gasly. He covered 88 laps during the first part of the test. This afternoon, we also had a first go with the sup ersoft compound, just to get some more information. The decision was made in order to try and get back on track late in the day while simultaneously investigating the issue, and Bottas was eventually able to complete six laps in the closing minutes. Russell used the C5 compound to post a 1m19.662s and end up ninth-fastest, and it was a lap time that would have put Williams right in the middle of the pack on the second day last week. "Great to get some laps on the vehicle, just understand a bit of low fuel, high fuel, what the car's doing, and gives us an indication of what to do the rest of the week".

"It's good for me to sit in the auto for a few hours to keep learning and building our knowledge of the vehicle".
