Ferrari has theoretically the best time in the second test in Barcelona, ​​which is obtained by summing the best sectors of their drivers, and in the three sectors of the tracks in Barcelona three different teams set the fastest times.

BEST SECTOR TIMES – SECTOR 1

The times in the first sector depend a lot on the speed on the main straight and the speed in the first two turns, and the Turn 3 is easy full throttle for all cars with low fuel.

Racing Point and  Alpha Tauri are fastest, suggesting less fuel than Mercedes, Ferrari and Red Bull.

Mercedes and Ferrari used less aggressive engine settings and were only 8th and 10th.

Racing Point 21.531
Alpha Tauri 21.662
Red Bull 21.701
Renault 21.757
McLaren 21.780
Williams 21.796
Alfa Romeo 21.804
Ferrari 21.828
Haas 21.851
Mercedes 21.888

BEST SECTOR TIMES – SECTOR 2

The second sector consists of a medium speed Turn 4, a slow Turn 5 and a medium speed S-combination of Turns 7 and 8 and a fast Turn 9, all of which pass at more than 250 km/h, followed by a shorter straight section where everyone reaches more than 300 km/h.

The top three teams posted the best times here, with only 0.033 seconds between them.

Ferrari 28.191
Red Bull 28.221
Mercedes 28.224
Renault 28.290
Williams 28.390
Racing point 28.401
Alpha Tauri 28.452
Haas 28.486
McLaren 28.560
Alfa Romeo 28.648

BEST SECTOR TIMES – SECTOR 3

The third sector is by far the slowest and consists of a very slow Turn 10, a slightly faster Turn 11 that has a much longer duration and an extremely slow last chicane (Turns 14 and 15) followed by a full throttle through Turn 16 and a main straight.

Mercedes, as it did last year, showed the best performance in slow turns and was the only one to dip below 26 seconds, but Ferrari was faster than with last year SF90 and clocked the second fastest time 26.015.

Renault was third ahead of the Red Bull, but this is probably due to slightly less fuel onboard.

Racing Point wasn’t quick in the third sector, the slowest being Haas and Williams.

Mercedes 25.942
Ferrari 26.015
Renault 26.129
Red Bull 26.222
McLaren 26.362
Alfa Romeo 26.438
Alpha Tauri 26.447

Haas 26.530
Williams 26.649
