I'm working on this project now and I don't want to give the impression that this Renault is for me it is second best. That is not the case. I want to make this project a success. We have only just started 2020, so there is no point in talking about next year. "

    • Despite the limited number of rounds, Albon shows fast times. The Red Bull driver is on the same band as Lewis Hamilton with 1.17.550 a hundredth rapper than the Brit.
    • Ferrari, just like last week, is not coming to the times of Mercedes and Red Bull, although Vettel runs on a softer tire than Hamilton and Albon. The German, who is holding an extra press conference this afternoon at 3 p.m. with team boss Mattia Binotto, finishes sixth on the times list.
    • Vettel also takes care of one of the two code red situations. The four-time champion spins hard off the track and puts a lot of gravel on the asphalt. Williams driver Nicholas Latifi has a technical problem and is responsible for the second red flag.
    • Lewis Hamilton is the most productive. The Mercedes driver goes around the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya 89 times.
