MERCEDES set the pace from McLaren in the morning session of the second day of pre-season testing at Barcelona.

Valtteri Bottas led the way with a lap of 1:20.270 with a short run on the soft tyres to dislodge McLaren’s Stoffel Vandoorne from top spot.

Vandoorne’s time, 1:20.325, was a flying lap faster than anything McLaren produced a year ago across the eight days of running at the Circuit de Catalunya.

However, Vandoorne’s flier was registered on the hypersoft tyres, the quickest compound in Pirelli’s 2018 portfolio, and on a three-lap run.

F1 2021, Spanish Grand Prix, results: Lewis Hamilton says Max Verstappen lesson was learned in Spain, Mercedes, Red Bull

Red Bull’s Verstappen was swift off the line, taking the race lead from Hamilton who trailed for the vast majority of the race at Circuit de Catalunya.

But a bold two-stop strategy by Mercedes paid dividends for the world champion, who made up more than 22 seconds to Verstappen to take back the race lead with just six laps remaining.

Hamilton held on for the win to open up a 14-point lead in the drivers’ championship — but the greatest benefit he took from the race may not have been the win at all.

Daniel Ricciardo finally has reason to smile in the 2021 F1 season after recording his strongest race weekend for McLaren at the Spanish Grand Prix on Sunday.
