The winter seems to have gone by the team Mercedes, that in less than four hours completed a total distance of Grand Prix, allowing us to even make batches of more than fifteen laps in the first day.
however, it was Sebastian Vettel who set the fastest time of the morning with a Ferrari SF70-H that also proved to be a tone above the 50 laps with no mechanical problem whatsoever.
can’t say the same for Fernando Alonso, which, following the corresponding turn of setup, saw as there was a leak of oil in the new propeller from Honda which will be left inside the garage for the rest of the morning. For his part, Daniel Ricciardo caused the first red flag of the preseason, the failure of a sensor on the gearbox that kept him from rolling later with normal.
In terms of the technical developments, we were able to watch as the Williams FW40 and the Haas VT-17 incorporating ailerons of small size similar to the T-Wing Mercedes at the ends of its fins, of shark, thus starting the traditional development of the single-seaters typical of the pre-season.
The afternoon session will begin at 14:00 and ends at 18:00 hours peninsulares.
