F1 Testing, Day Three Second Test: Ferrari set fastest times of winter

  • Sebastian Vettel crashes Ferrari in Formula One testing

However, it was Scuderia driver Leclerc who made an impressive late charge on C5 Pirelli tyres to continue to drop the time, finishing clear on 1:16.231.

The next fastest driver was Toro Rosso's Alex Albon, 0.651s off Leclerc, using the same compound tyre as the Ferrari.

Anglo-Thai driver Alexander Albon was second fastest with a lap of 1:16.882, also on C5 tyres, with McLaren's Lando Norris third in 1:17.084.

Max Verstappen, Daniil Kvyat, Valtteri Bottas, Lewis Hamilton and Nico Hulkenberg filled out the remainder of the top 10.

Asked if he could have matched Leclerc's effort, Gasly said: "Honestly, no".

"Even when he doesn't drive, there are things that can help me with my driving or the performance of the vehicle".

"But the auto is good, the feeling is good, that's the main thing".

"I think they are really fast, they showed some good pace", he said.

"There's still some margin, a bit obviously in myself I still have to learn and get more comfortable with the vehicle".

"We got a lot of laps today which is a good thing, but we've come across a few little hurdles, so we're just working our way through them, trying to be as diligent as possible trying to understand the causes - which is exactly what testing is for", said Hamilton.

Red Bull later put out a statement on the team's official Twitter account confirming Gasly was not hurt.

Gasly, meanwhile, went into a spin at Turn 9, sending him off the track and into the barriers. "I wasn't in control any more and went more or less straight into the barrier".

"Red Bull seem in good shape as well", Bottas said.

"Inside the vehicle I was going into turn three and I had a feeling there was an issue with the front-left corner", Vettel explained yesterday. Long night for the mechanics, sorry for them, but most important is we can get Max [Verstappen] in the auto tomorrow.

"Yesterday, we could recover some of the track time lost in the morning, so I'm still positive with the vehicle and the feeling inside it". The time either side of lunch is traditionally when Ferrari focuses on its qualifying and race simulations during the second week of testing, the parts of pre-season which give the best indication of each car's raw performance over short long runs.

Now he hopes day two of the second week of testing brings more track time as they continue to tweak their vehicle ahead of next month's opening race of the season in Melbourne.
