Ferrari's Vettel fastest as Hamilton leaves it to Bottas

Ferrari's Vettel fastest as Hamilton leaves it to Bottas

Lewis Hamilton's Mercedes team-mate Valtteri Bottas has accepted he holds an early advantage over the British driver, whose testing schedule has been hampered by bad weather.

Vettel was quickest but Bottas was only 0.303 seconds behind despite using a tyre one grade softer and slower.

"It's great to be back in the vehicle after three months off, but unfortunately we didn't get the chance to complete many laps today owing to the bad weather", Hamilton said.

The team said the unpredictable weather meant plans were flexible and that Hamilton had been involved with and agreed with the decision. I don't know about performance, but with the general operation everything is really smooth.

His stricken vehicle was taken back to the pits and after a lengthy delay, he was able to put in 51 laps along with the fifth fastest time of 1:21.339, just under 1.2 seconds off Ricciardo's best effort.

Vettel was one of three drivers to have off-track incidents during the day.

Verstappen finished the opening half of running in ninth, with 11 laps to his name, fewer than only Haas' Kevin Magnussen.

"Having said that I don't think everyone else supports the extension of the test".

Ferrari's Vettel fastest as Hamilton leaves it to Bottas

Ferrari's Sebastian Vettel topped the charts on the second day of Formula One pre-season testing at Barcelona, setting both the fastest lap time and completing the highest amount of laps.

"The vehicle is working, we didn't have any problems reliability-wise".

The drivers all lost a bit of on-track time as snow began to fall at the Circuit de Catalunya with just under 90 minutes of play remaining.

He failed to secure a race seat for the season despite testing with Renault and Williams late previous year but the British team saw enough to include him in their squad as a development driver.

McLaren look to be more competitive after their switch from Honda to Renault engines but their insistence on choosing much softer tyres than other teams is making it especially hard to judge them.

Max Verstappen, who missed a large part of the morning's running when his RB14 sprung a leak, was fourth ahead of Carlos Sainz and Pierre Gasly.

Elsewhere, we saw a welcome return to testing for Robert Kubica, who was on testing duty for Williams in the afternoon.
