F1 Winter TESTs 2018, SPAIN - 2. and last week  prior first race Australia end of March !

Scudería Ferrari: Sebastian Vettel, PUSHING FOR THE 800km
“It was a good day’s work,” commented  Sebastian Vettel at the end of the session.
“We managed to get through our programme, even if the conditions weren’t always ideal, because of the wind.”

Ferrari SF71H: Sebastian Vettel during his third day of Barcelona Winter Test March 2018
That’s the distance in kilometres covered by Seb today in the SF71H.
Montmelo circuit - 171 laps totals 796 kilometres. That’s the distance Sebastian Vettel reeled off in the SF71H on this the first day of the second and final pre-season test session.

This time, the weather behaved itself with air temperature reaching 15 degrees and the track hitting 26. Only wind in the afternoon affected the session.
Scuderia Ferrari set to work on the dot of 9, the car doing some laps fitted with sensors to acquire data linked to the aerodynamics. After that came some relatively long runs, switching between the Soft and Medium compound tyres. It was on the latter that Seb set his fastest time in 1’20”396, on his 66th lap.

Tomorrow, Wednesday, testing continues with Kimi Raikkonen at the wheel.

Mercedes AMG Petronas: Lewis Hamilton:
It's been a good day. We've got through everything we needed and put good mileage on the car - it's been productive.
The biggest challenge we faced today was to get the tyres working properly on this new track surface. The medium tyre was difficult to get working; the soft tyre is better for warm-up, but suffered with degradation. But we are learning all the time.
Overall it's been a good start to the second test although there is not a whole lot to say at this moment. We have not worked too much on fine-tuning the set-up as we're mostly still gathering information. In the next couple of days, once we get into the long-runs and some shorter qualifying-style runs, we will get a better idea of where the car is.

Valtteri Bottas:
The conditions today were much better than last week and we're all really happy about that. We got lots of valuable data today. This morning we focused on medium to long runs, trying different mechanical setups of the car.
In these weather conditions we start to really work the tyres and we had a few issues to manage. So we had a few more challenges with the tyres than we had last week, but at least now they can warm up.
We keep discovering more about the new car, learning how it reacts to different settings. We did more than 80 laps - so more than a race distance, a really good mileage. The car was very reliable, I really enjoyed being back in the car and I'm looking forward to continuing tomorrow.

Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport kicked off the second week of pre-season testing in Barcelona with a productive day's work:
In considerably improved weather conditions, the F1 W09 EQ Power+ ran for a total of 824 kilometres, with Valtteri and Lewis both completing similar mileages.
Valtteri ran through a series of fundamental set-up changes on the day, as the team worked to understand how the tyre compounds react to these changes.
Lewis worked on a number of recovery strategies for potential sensor failures and tried out aerodynamic bodywork parts for the upcoming season
Mercedes-Benz Power Units today completed a total of 1,853 km
