Mercedes is by all accounts the winner after the first test in Barcelona, ​​but it is enough to remember 2019 and the wrong conclusion that followed after the first test to wait at least the second test for all teams to do real qualifying simulations.

Regardless of whether Mercedes is really fastest or Red Bull and Ferrari still have enough reserve to keep up with them, it is clear that Mercedes is the winner with the most number of laps with Red Bull in second place, while Ferrari only took the eighth place in that category.

Although only eighth in terms of laps, Ferrari still drove 71.66% of Mercedes laps, which is not so bad, but the real question is why Ferrari used such conservative engine modes compared to its customers Alfa Romeo and Haas, as confirmed by Mercedes. but it was also evident from the speed traps.

Red Bull, like Ferrari, was not focused on performance in the first week, but neither did Mercedes spend a lot of time on quicker softer compounds, spending only a small portion of the final day to get useful information ahead of next week.

Another indication that Ferrari is far from its potential is the fact that this year’s best time is almost two seconds slower than last year, and the new SF1000 is definitely a step up from its predecessor and should have a healthy advantage over the SF90 from last year’s tests, especially since the tyres didn’t change.
