Despite laying down the fastest lap time ever at the Circuit de Catalunya, Sebastian Vettel was warned against drawing the “wrong conclusions” from the timesheets.
The Ferrari driver put in a blistering 1:17.182 on the hypersoft tyres on the penultimate day of testing.
His time was almost a second quicker than the previous fastest time which had been set by Daniel Ricciardo the day before.
Vettel, though, says one should not draw conclusions from testing.
“We still need to work on the performance and the feeling,” he said.
“I think it’s the wrong conclusion to look at the time sheet – there’s more too it than a good lap.
