F1 2020 Pre-Season Testing: Day 2 Statistics

F1 2020 Pre-Season Testing: Day 2 Statistics

As Mercedes raised eyebrows with their innovative DAS system, Alfa Romeo set the fastest lap time of the day. Here are all the statistics from the second day of testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.


The major talking point from day two of pre-season testing was Mercedes’ innovative DAS (Dual Axis Steering) system. The system raised plenty of eyebrows and prompted questions about its legality; but Mercedes have confirmed that the FIA have declared it legal.

The second day of testing was again a largely uninterrupted affair, with the only red flag coming around fifteen minutes before the end of the afternoon session when Kimi Raikkonen came to a halt. Renault spent a lot of the morning in the garage, minimising on track time for Daniel Ricciardo for a second day in succession. After yesterday’s illness, Sebastian Vettel took to the track for the first time in the SF1000 in the afternoon. Mercedes’ day ended over an hour earlier, with the W11 suffering electrical problems. Nevertheless, they were the team who completed the most laps. Raikkonen topped the timesheets with a 1:17.091, 0.295 seconds slower than yesterday’s best time.
