Daniel Ricciardo set the fastest lap on the morning of the second day of pre-season testing in Barcelona after dispatching Carlos Sainz from the top of the standings 12 minutes before the end while Sergio Perez brought the first red flag in pre-season testing for Red Bull.

Ricciardo set the best time 1:20.355 on the C3 compound of Pirelli tyres and improved Sainz’s time for 0.191 seconds, completing 65 laps in MCL36 which he didn’t drive yesterday.

Sainz spent most of the morning in first place for Ferrari and finished second with a time of 1:20.546 set on C3 tyres, with the Spaniard driving the most laps of all drivers in the morning (71).

Perez drove just 38 laps in a Red Bull RB18 that slowed at the Turn 12 exit and stopped on its way to the Turn 13, causing a red flag 26 minutes before the lunch break.

Gasly climbed to third place in AlphaTauri 12 minutes before the end with a time of 1:20.764 and Albon finished fourth for Williams after spending the first hour driving installation laps with equipment to measure aerodynamic parameters.

Stroll drove for Aston Martin and finished fifth ahead of Schumacher in Haas, who had a much better day than yesterday when he drove only 23 laps due to floor problems – today he drove almost three times as many laps in the first four hours (65).

Bottas did not have a more productive second day for Alfa Romeo with only 21 laps in seventh place ahead of Perez in Red Bull and Hamilton in Mercedes who set the best times on the C2 tyre compound.

Ocon also used C2 tyres in his best lap and finished last, seven tenths behind the penultimate Hamilton.

The test continues at 2 p.m local time (GMT+1).
