Testing Day 3: In 100 Words

It was a duel of red and silver as Ferrari and Mercedes battled for dominance on the third day in Barcelona. Bottas ended the day slightly quicker than Vettel, although this was on the faster ultrasoft tyre. Red Bull vastly improved after their dismal performance in the past 2 days. The surprise package of day 3 was Renault, who finished 4th and 5th after a day of blistering pace. And although McLaren finally got some reliability from their engine, they were dreadfully off the pace. Finally, thoughts go out to Lance Stroll who has crashed his Williams three times in two days.

    Great blog .. congratulations, the 100 word limit round-up is superb. My critique re your lastest is – i’m not sure that each test day is also a competition – its testing a zillion variables – misleading to suggest a winner?
