If the tests were over the first week, it was almost impossible for the strongest teams, they lost time in the second. The machine accumulates the accumulated distance, there are breakdowns.
On Tuesday, Mercedes lost half of the day, a wave break and a substitute for the center, and on Wednesday the third time that Sebastian Vettel was dying of the car's ice.
The cause of the incident was a suspension failure. There is not always enough spare test spare parts, it took SF90 time to restore. In the second session, we thought that Charles Leclaire was going to work, with hours of hydraulic problems a few hours earlier, but only in the last minutes of the session. In the second round, the second Ferrari has been tested among foreigners.
After sending a Vettel accident to a medical center – a dangerous overload sensor has worked, but has worked – the Germans soon gave an interview, telling about the details of the disturbances. The car's evacuation and fence recovery lasted for forty minutes.
The red flag appeared after the machines of Sainz and Verstappen stopped, but this did not affect its schedule, after a short break they continued working.
This week, for the first time, Daniel Quat was behind Toro Rosso's wheel. He liked it a lot, he made a lot of hard rubber circles on the day, in the car-gathering program group. His young partner Alexander Elbon has gained experience in his test days, and Daniel works with engineers. His experience is very important for the team.
We worked on Renault aerodynamics, using circles with different sensors in the toughest C1 tires. In the morning, Daniel Riccard made 72 returns, and Nico Hulkenberg continued the same program.
Robert Kubica tested for the first time in winter behind the wheel of Williams. The group is trying to compensate the lost time last week, so the program needs to be reduced. Fortunately, the new car has been reliable, and so far it has hardly tightened up.
The second day at the top of the McLaren Racer protocol. Carlos Sainz performed the best lap 1: 17,144, the winter test in the last six days. Covered by Spanish and remote day makers – McLaren's new MCL34 is fast and reliable.
Tomorrow they will continue the test. Most players will replace correspondents and will often be the last day of the test.
