Red Bull Racing driver Daniel Ricciardo has set the best time of winter testing in 2018 so far. His 1:18.047 on the hypersoft compound is even an unofficial track record at the Circuit de Catalunya. Lewis Hamilton posted the second time, a 1:18.400, also on hypersofts.
McLaren seem to be doing okay this morning, but an oil leak hampered proceedings. Fernando Alonso had to stop his car at Turn 7. With 47 laps he is the least productive driver of the day so far. Hamilton has done 90 laps and is the most productive driver.
