The end of day two of testing in Formula 1’s first winter test has ended and Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel is still on top of the time sheets. Ferrari may not have delivered as many laps as Mercedes did on day one when Lewis Hamilton proved the reliability of his 2016 chassis but The Italian team did answer on Tuesday with 126 laps ran.
On the other hand, while Nico Rosberg was the Mercedes driver in for day two, the German pounded out even more laps than Ferrari with a whopping 172 laps! The Mercedes certainly looks daunting in pre-season testing from a reliability standpoint.
Other notables were Williams F1’s Valtteri Bottas who delivered 134 laps and Haas F1’s Esteban Gutierrez had a terrific and uneventful day delivering 79 crucial laps for the freshman team.
