Dan needs to absolutely thump the Hulk.

 

Hopefully Ferrari then realised their mistake in keeping Vettel.

Dan also need to learn to let go, and not let the non-racing stuff bother him (yeah, easy to say 😝). He appears to be still bitter over that infamous crash incident with Max.

Still early days, but Ricciardo was the slowest driver on the first day of testing. On the second day he had a rear wing failure that limited his laps. :unsure:

Whilst it doesn't look awesome consider long pace & hard tyre. PlanetF1 has times with tyre compounds listed as per below (copied from https://www.planetf1.com/news/leclerc-keeps-ferrari-top-gasly-crashes-out/). We won't know much about ultimate pace until the last day, low fuel all-speed runs are the last thing to test. 

 

McLaren's pace is somewhat overstated, therefore, and Renault's 'last of session' time was being one of the only teams running C2 rubber. Even in this session 28 laps is very little time to get anything sorted. The only other certainty is that Ferrari has an unusually fast car.

 

Would be interesting to hear what Pirelli thinks the various compounds are worth per lap.

 

Day two timesheet

 

1) Charles Leclerc, Ferrari, 1:18.247, 157 laps (C3)
2) Lando Norris, McLaren, 1:18.553, 104 laps (C4)
3) Kevin Magnussen, Haas, 1:19.206, 59 laps (C3)
4) Alex Albon, Toro Rosso, 1:19.301, 132 lap (C4)
5) Antonio Giovinazzi, Alfa Romeo, 1:19.312, 101 laps (C4)
6) Valtteri Bottas, Mercedes, 1:19.535, 92 laps (C3)
7) Pierre Gasly, Red Bull, 1:19.814, 92 laps (C3)
😎 Nico Hulkenberg, Renault, 1:19.837, 95 laps (C3)
9) Daniel Ricciardo, Renault, 1:19.886, 28 laps (C3)
10) Lewis Hamilton, Mercedes, 1:19.928, 74 laps (C3)
11) Lance Stroll, Racing Point, 1:20.433, 79 laps (C3)
12) Pietro Fittipaldi, Haas, 1:21.849, 13 laps (C3)

 

C1 = Hardest tyre C5 = softest tyre
