Kimi Raikkonen set the fastest time of the second day of the testing in Barcelona, with a best lap of 1m20.960s, after a total of 108 laps. This means that in two days Ferrari has completed 208 laps of the circuit, which is promising in terms of reliability. In terms of performance it is too early to draw any real conclusions. Lewis Hamilton did 66 laps in his Mercedes today and set the second fastest time of the day with a 1m20.983s, only a fraction slower than Raikkonen. The Mercedes team has done nearly 300 laps in the two days, considerably more than Ferrari. Today Valtteri Bottas set the eighth fastest time, completing 102 laps and recording a 1m22.986s lap. Max Verstappen was third fatest today in his Red Bull, with a best of 1m22.200s after 89 laps. This means that Red Bull has managed just 140 laps, less than half the mileage of Mercedes. Fourth fastest was Kevin Magnussen in the Haas, who compleyed 118 laps, with a best of 1m22.204s, which looks promising for the team. In his two days of running he completed 170 laps, despite losing out after hitting a wall on the first day.
Next up was Esteban Ocon in the Force India, who set a best of 1m22.509s, after 86 laps. This means that Force India has completed 125 laps over the first two days. Seventh today was Daniil Kvyat, who did 68 laps in his Toro Rosso, with a best of 1m22.956s. This means that Toro Rosso has managed 120 laps over the two days.
Jolyon Palmer was next with 53 laps to his name, the best lap being a 1m24.139s. This means the two renault drivers have managed 110 laps between them in the course of the two days. Antonio Giovinazzi was next up for Sauber with 67 laps and a best time of 1m24.617s, this means that the Sauber has done 140 laps.
It was a poor day for McLaren and or Williams. Stoffel Vandoorne did 40 laps in the McLaren, because of further mechanical troubles and his best was only a 1m25.600s. This means that McLaren has done just 69 laps in two days, which is not a great start. Williams too is now short of mileage after Lance Stroll spun and damaged the car after just 12 laps. His best was a 1m26.040s. Fortunately Massa did 86 laps yesterday and so Williams has completed nearly 100 laps.
