Formula 1 2020 Day 3 Testing Results​

On the third day of winter testing, Valtteri Bottas demonstrated many of the W11’s steps on the softest tire Pirelli C5. He was only four tents slower than last year’s Spanish Grand Prix. His teammate Lewis Hamilton couldn’t get close to his time, and the Mercedes engine showed a lot of smoke during the afternoon game.

Ferrari team manager Mattia Benotto told the media that the SF1000 is slower than the main competitors Mercedes W11 and Red Bull RB16. Of course, is this really hard to say? I remember that Mercedes said the same thing last year …

There are four situations that cause the test to stop when a red flag is issued. Sebastian Vettel’s SF1000 stalled due to engine problems, which made it difficult for Ferrari mechanics because the engine had to be replaced. The second was caused by Nicholas Latifi, who also encountered technical problems at the Williams team.When Kevin Magnussen lost control of the Haas VF-20 due to a rear puncture, he kissed the wall of Turn 7, which was even more apparent around Catalan The reason for many red flags. Later, Daniel Ricciardo also encountered a mechanical failure on Renault cars, which was the last red flag of the day.
