Best of the best from the second test

Sebastian Vettel topped the overall timesheet in the second pre-season test as his 1:16.221 beat Lewis Hamilton by 0.003s.

Taking out the fuel and swapping to the C5 rubber on the final day of testing, the Ferrari driver laid down the fastest lap seen this week in Spain.

He clocked a 1:16.221 on Friday morning while Hamilton, despite saying Ferrari are as much as half a second faster than Mercedes, finished up 0.003s slower.

The Brit’s time was also set on Friday as he put in the C5 tyres late in the afternoon.

Charles Leclerc was third quickest, his best time set on Thursday, while Valtteri Bottas was fourth.

Nico Hulkenberg claimed best of the rest for Renault with a 1:16.843 while slowest of all were George Russell and Robert Kubica in the Williams FW42.
