F1 Testing: Vettel and Ferrari fastest

Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel set the fastest time of 2018 Formula 1 testing so far on the second day of running at Barcelona. A turn in the weather led to a quiet final hour, with reports of snow in some areas of the circuit resulting in teams either stopping their programmes entirely or switching to short runs on the intermediate or wet tyres.

Ferrari and Mercedes have given the first indication that they could be set for another close title battle in 2018. Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel and Valtteri Bottas of Mercedes were first and second fastest on day two testing at Circuit de Catalunya in Spain.

Vettel was quickest but Bottas was only 0.303 seconds behind despite using a tyre one grade softer and slower. Lewis Hamilton had been due to drive in the afternoon but Mercedes kept Bottas in the car to maximise running time.
