Formula 1 2020 Day 2 Testing 2 Results
After several cold but sunny mornings, it was cool and dark at dawn today with signs of rain at night.
Some teams, including Ferrari, have said they will run fast on the softest tires in the last two days of the test. But it depends on the weather, and it remains to be seen how long this track will take, and how this will affect scheduled shows.
The track on the track was relatively dry, but in the early morning, the runoff area was full of puddles.
Esteban Ocon was the first to bypass the wet section. When the car tried to adjust to a lack of grip, the French driver swung around the corner. Sufficient spraying was performed to confirm that these intermediates were the correct compounds under these conditions.
When Sebastian Vettel crossed the finish line to the top of the timetable, it was also Antonio Giovinazzi who lost the rear, spun on the gravel, and crashed with his rear wing The tire barrier. He was able to drive back to the pit lane, severely damaged the rear wing, causing Red Flag to clear the track.
Half an hour later, Verstappen spun on Turn 5 and raised a red flag when placing RB16 in a gravel pit. At the end of the morning game, Vettel made the same spin in the 5th round, which resulted in a third red flag.
In the afternoon, a Lewis Hamilton engine malfunction caused Mercedes to stop on the track. He only did 14 laps. The reliability of Mercedes seems impeccable, but it is no longer. The red flag flew, the meeting went halfway, and the bailiff hurriedly rescued the affected Mercedes.
Red Bull is another team that doesn’t have a completely simple day. In the morning, Verstappen’s two spins cost them some time, and then Albon seemed to spend many afternoons off the field. The Thai driver finally turned at 61 laps, so he turned and turned, but he still has question marks after today.
