FINISH (morning session) - And this ends this test morning . A summary:

  • For the first time in this test winter we have seen several teams riding on the softest C5 tire at the same time. Daniel Ricciardo is the best, because the Australian is clocking the fastest time.
  • Alexander Albon came into action on the soft C4 band for the first time, but did not make a best impression. In his third round, Max Verstappen's teammate spins off the track, after which he has not driven. Red Bull has therefore lost an hour of track time.
  • The test day will resume at 2 p.m. When Red Bull has repaired the RB16, Max Verstappen comes into action.

Another 17 minutes - Dark clouds are gathering over Montmel贸. It is getting colder and the wind is turning on. As a result, the circumstances are not nearly as optimal as an hour ago. Bad news for Red Bull, which is the only team that has not yet completed a qualification simulation.

20 minutes to go - After the qualifying simulations that have just been completed, calm returns to Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The three cars that now make miles (Hamilton, Grosjean and R盲ikk枚nen) are working on a longer stint . Red Bull seems to stop taking action before lunch.

Another 33 minutes - While we are looking at Hamilton, Daniel Ricciardo (!) Is clocking the fastest time. The Australian goes around Barcelona-Catalunya in 1.16.276. An impressive round of the Renault. Hamilton improves by a few hundredths, but does not come to the time of Ricciardo.

  • Ricciardo (C5) - 1.16.276
  • Leclerc (C5) - 1.16.360
  • Hamilton (C5) - 1.16.410
  • P茅rez (C5) - 1.16.658
  • Formula 1 路 44 minutes ago

    36 more minutes - We are in the right place again: Hamilton drives out on the fastest C5 tire.

    Another 42 min - Problems with Red Bull Racing. After the Albon spin, the team took the floor off the car and locked the pit box. It is unclear whether Max Verstappen's racing stable will be in action for lunch.

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    Another 45 minutes - Hamilton is in second position in his first qualification simulation. The Brit is one and a half tenths slower than Leclerc. The score:

    Another 48 minutes - Leclerc and Albon are both on the road with the fastest C5 rubber.

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    Another 50 minutes - What makes Albon's spider even more unfortunate is that he was on the road for the first time this winter on the soft C4 tire. As a result, we again have no chance to measure the Red Bull with other cars.

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    Another 55 minutes - The Red Bull engineers are investigating the RB16 for damage, but it seems to be better than expected. It is already the sixth or seventh time that the Red Bull is going around during this test winter. To be honest, it has happened so often that we have lost count.

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    Another 57 min - Albon in the gravel! Max Verstappen's teammate shoots in the third sector of the track and hits the gravel. He still knows how to keep his car working and reaches the pits.

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    1 hour left - We had to wait for more than five days, but there is finally a Red Bull on the soft tire. Will we finally get to see a quick time from Max Verstappen's team?

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    Another 1 hour and 16 minutes - To get a better idea of 鈥嬧媡he relationships between the cars, it would be nice if Mercedes and Red Bull also started using the soft tire. Unfortunately that has not happened yet.

    Formula 1 路 one hour ago

    Another 1 hour and 19 minutes - this time Leclerc holds his accelerator pedal and clocks the fourth time. All drivers from the top five ride on the soft C4 tire. The score:

    Another 1 hour and 30 minutes - Charles Leclerc doesn't come to P茅rez's time on the soft C4 tire, but he may be doing it deliberately. The Ferrari is super-fast in the first and second sector, but goes off its gas when it comes out of the last corner.

    Formula 1 路 2 hours ago

    Another 1 hour and 31 minutes - Ricciardo climbs to second place on the times list. The Renault driver is approaching the time from P茅rez to one and a half tenths.

    Formula 1 路 2 hours ago

    Another 1 hour and 31 minutes - And there is Daniel Ricciardo on the soft C4 tire. Can the Australian attack the time of P茅rez?

    Formula 1 路 2 hours ago

    1 hour and 34 more minutes - If the teams still want to complete qualification simulations, then it will have to happen in the next hour and a half. The track is at its fastest around this time.

    Formula 1 路 2 hours ago

    Sergio P茅rez today scores the third fastest time of this test winter.

    The Racing Point is without a doubt the big surprise of these test days. Cleverly adopted the Mercedes concept. Car also looks strong in the corners. # F1 Testing
