Charles Leclerc and Sebastian Vettel once again set the best top speeds in the speed trap this season with the new spec power unit helping them to top the charts at Circuit de Barcelona – Catalunya.

This year, Ferrari is fastest on the straights, except in Australia where they were driving with more conservative settings, and Leclerc and Vettel set the two highest speeds in the qualifying for the Spanish GP in Barcelona.

Leclerc was the fastest with 325 km/h on the speed trap at the end of the main straight while Vettel was 0.8 km/h slower in second place and Renault and McLaren drivers put two Renault power units in top five.

Bottas was as faster Mercedes with 5.1 km/h deficit to Leclerc while Ferrari was around 4 km/h faster at the start finish line.

The Mercedes F1 W10 has more downforce and great slow speed traction which it uses very well on the track like Barcelona, especially evident in the slow third sector where they were a class above the rest of the field.
