    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Mala suerte para Vettel. Otra sesión que no ha podido casi rodar por problemas en su coche. Aston Martin anuncia que dan por finalizados los test debido a problemas con la presión del turbo.

    An early finish for #SV5 due to a loss of boost pressure. We are investigating further but unfortunately that’s a wrap for our test.

    Sebastian finishes today with 57 laps. #F1Testing

    En los últimos instantes de los test casi se tocan Sainz y Kimi. Los dos han tenido que salirse de la pista.

    A mi el tema de las carreras sprint...no me disgusta. Yo ya dije que lo suyo hubiera sido probarlas en el 2020 dada la anormalidad de la situación pero hay que ver como se desarrollan.

    Sobre los tests, veremos, pero Mercedes no parece arrancar en la situación de poderio de otros años, Y en la clase media, pues tambien parece que va a haber tortas.

    A modo de recordatorio de estas 3 jornadas de pruebas, mostramos aquí un recopilatorio de lo que nos han dicho cada equipo al finalizar cada una de las jornadas:

    Teams' reaction after the opening day

    The final preparation for the 2021 FIA Formula One season kicked off today when the lights switched to green at the end of the pit lane of the Bahrain International Circuit. With the extremely short pre-season testing, teams and drivers were eager to rack up mileage at Manama. Perfect start for Red Bull

    Red Bull Racing Honda’s 2021 Formula One Championship charge got off to a solid start in Bahrain today, with Verstappen at the wheel of the BR16B as this year’s sole three-day pre-season test kicked off at the Bahrain International Circuit.


    In blustery and extremely dusty conditions, the Dutchman powered through 139 laps of the 5.412km track on his way to the day’s quickest time. After his first marathon stint in the new car, the 23-year-old said: “We had a very positive day and managed a lot of laps even though the track conditions were quite difficult. It was very warm with a lot of wind and we know the degradation is always high around here so I’m very happy with how it went.


    “We aimed for this number of laps and when you can complete a full programme like this the Team can also be pleased with the information we have. We don’t need to talk about pace yet and it isn’t really a discussion until we get to Q3 at the first race weekend - it’s only then you see the real pace in all the cars. The main thing is that the car felt nice to drive, so it’s a positive start.”


    Head of Race Engineering Guillaume Rocquelin added: “Today went well. The conditions were pretty difficult and very windy, especially in the morning. It calmed down a bit in the afternoon but a lot of dust had been kicked up and it was very hazy and quite difficult to run in.


    “In terms of objectives we’re really pleased, as we had a target in terms of the number of laps we wanted to get through and a fairly busy run plan and we were able to stick to both. Lap time is not what it’s about at this stage and I don’t think Max will be getting too pumped up about being at the top of the timesheet on day one.


    “What’s more important is that we were able to follow the plan and do the laps. For Sergio tomorrow, the conditions should hopefully be a little better. It’s not supposed to be quite as hazy, but the wind is likely to still be quite strong. The plan will be pretty much the same for Checo, so fingers crossed we’re looking forward to another good day,” he said.
    High mileage for Scuderia Ferrari

    Just as the majority of the field, Ferrari also divided its programme into two halves with both of its drivers getting behind the team’s 2021 F1 contender, the SF21 on the opening day of pre-season testing.


    The team’s Monegasque driver Charles Leclerc kicked off the work in the morning, completing a total of 58 laps with his best being a 1’33”242. Leclerc completed his first laps with the car fitted with a rake before concentrating on longer runs. With ten minutes remaining, the 23-year-old driver was instructed by the team to park the car at the side of the track because of an anomaly with the combustion spotted on the telemetry.


    "The first day in a new car is always very interesting, after all the work carried out over the winter. We completed the whole programme without any major problems and the first impression of the car is pretty good.


    „But obviously, it’s far too early to give a full assessment. Now I can’t wait to get behind the wheel again tomorrow,” said Leclerc.


    Despite strong winds, limited grip and poor visibility, Sainz’s work programme was similar to that of his team-mate, running both the C2 and C3 compounds. The Madrid-born completed 57 laps (308,5 kms), the best in 1’31”919.


    "In general I think today was a positive first day of testing, where the target was to complete our whole run programme and we did it, so happy with that. I guess everyone wants to figure out the performance of each car after today, but I think it is way too early to tell, and very difficult to know in these kind of conditions – full of sand, very windy and with big variations in temperatures. All in all I think we can consider today a very good day. Thanks to everyone at the track and back at the factory. We keep working!"


    On Day 2, the Scuderia will follow a similar programme to today’s. This time, Sainz will drive the first part of the day and Leclerc the second.


    Nissany behind the FW43B

    Williams was the only team to give its test driver the chance to get behind the wheel despite the heavily limited mileage during the three-day pre-season testing.


    The French-Israeli driver notched up 83 laps in total with his best time being a 1:34.789.
    „I think it was a strong first day even with the poor conditions where we experienced a lot of sand and dust in the air,” added Nissany.


    „We got the most out of the car and I am happy with my performance, and I think the engineers were as well. We collected all of the data that we wanted and tested a lot of items so it has definitely been a very productive day, a lot of fun and a great opening to the season.”


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance commented: „Conditions were tough throughout the day, with high temperatures, strong winds and a lot of sand on the track this afternoon. This made performance testing very difficult, however, we were able to change focus to data gathering and operational practice, including pitstops and race start simulations.


    „Roy did a very good job in the difficult conditions, making no mistakes as he and his engineers worked nicely through their programme. He provided valuable feedback throughout the day, including on the new 2021 Pirelli tyres, which we had previously only run for a limited time at the final races of last season.


    „We have plenty to look through tonight as we continue our preparation for the race here in a few weeks’ time, but there were no issues with the car today and we are now in a good position to push it harder tomorrow. Hopefully the conditions will improve enough overnight to allow Nicholas the opportunity to try a range of test items as he begins to optimise the FW43B ready for racing.”
    The FW43B returns to the track tomorrow in Bahrain with Nicholas Latifi in the car.
    The Japanse makes his debut

    Pierre Gasly started the morning session strong, racking up an impressive 74 laps in his all-new AT02 – the highest of all drivers within the session.


    “Everything felt really good with the car this morning, we had a positive start to testing and were able to do a lot of laps – our main goal for today. Running for just three days, it’s important that we make the most of this time on track. We managed to complete our full testing programme for the first day and I felt very comfortable in the car.


    „Of course, there are areas that we need to work on and improve but that’s to be expected on the first day. The conditions today are quite tough to drive in – F1 cars don’t perform well with this level of wind – which isn’t great but it’s good to understand how the car works in these situations, especially as the first race of the season will be at this circuit.”


    The afternoon saw Yuki Tsunoda head out for his first official test, with conditions becoming more difficult as an increase in wind saw large amounts of sand and dust settle on the track. The wind and the sand, both in the air and on the track didn’t make his day an easy one, but with a slightly shortened session due to an issue in the car, he could complete a total of 37 laps to finish in P9 at the end of his first day.


    “It was great to experience the new car properly for the afternoon session and to complete my first official Formula 1 pre-season test as a Scuderia AlphaTauri driver. Obviously, at this stage mileage and data collection is key for me – as a rookie I want to gain the most out of the only three-days of testing available and learn a lot ahead of the first race here in Bahrain.


    „It’s been quite a difficult afternoon session unfortunately. The weather has been bad, with the sand and wind making the conditions tricky to drive in, and then the team discovered an issue with the fuel system in my car. This meant that I had to box ahead of the end of the session – they’re investigating it now though and I’ll be ready to head back out on track when the lights turn green for the morning session tomorrow.”


    Tomorrow both drivers will take to the track again for the second day of pre-season testing, with Tsunoda in the morning and Gasly in the afternoon.
    Only 48 laps for Mercedes

    The opening day of pre-season testing was not a perfect affair for the team that has dominated the proceedings in F1 since 2014. A gearshift problem in the morning session hindered the early progress of the Mercedes-AMG Petronas F1 Team on day one of pre-season testing in Bahrain but a solid afternoon of running helped to recover some of the testing and development targets for the day.
    The team discovered the mechanical issue on Bottas’ first lap with the Finn being instructed to drive back into the pits. He was able to complete five more laps, collecting aero data.


    „The whole team was looking forward to getting on track but on the install lap we noticed an issue with the gearbox so we had to localise the problem and change the gearbox which takes quite a bit of time,” added Bottas.


    „Only at the end of the morning session could we get back out for a few more laps before the red flag. A total of six laps for me, all with aero rakes on the car so not much running today and not an ideal start.


    „In recent years things have been pretty much bulletproof so it’s not a familiar experience. The good thing is that this year if you miss some running you can hopefully catch up because of the mileage limitation linked to the cost cap efficiencies. I am confident we can recover and I’m looking forward to two good days over the weekend.”


    His team mate Lewis Hamilton took to the track in the afternoon session, completing 42 laps exploring various set-up changes and signing-off several test items and procedures.


    „Today definitely wasn’t the cleanest of days that we’ve had but these things are sent to try us,” added the seven-time world champion. „Everyone has worked extremely hard to get us here. We had that mishap in the morning which was very unfortunate for Valtteri in terms of losing time on track and the team is working hard to try and understand what that was.


    „I think they did a great job to turn the car around. The second session wasn’t without its challenges, but we exist to find solutions to the problems we’re faced with. We just had a good debrief and we’ll keep working away.


    „I’ve never seen a sandstorm come through here before in all the years that I’ve driven at this circuit. The sand was moving like rain would move. Having sand on the tyres isn’t good for their longevity and getting consistency on long runs is difficult. Over a single lap it isn’t the worst, but you need lots of laps at this time of year to get data,” Hamilton said.
    High mileage for Alfa Romeo

    The first day back at school was a pretty straighforward action for the Hinwil-based Alfa Romeo Racing outfit. The Swiss-Italian squad worked with its driver pairing, Kimi Räikkönen and Antonio Giovinazzi.


    The 2007 world champion racked up a total of 64 laps, registering his best time with a 1m33.320.
    “First day in the car for me, so it was positive to run without any issue. It was quite windy and the conditions would change from corner to corner, which made it a bit tricky, but it was the same conditions for everyone so it didn’t really make a difference,” said the Finn.


    „As far as our programme went, it was a typical testing day: we tried different things, made sure everything went as planned and ticked all the boxes on our list. It’s pointless to make guesses about where we stand right now, we will have to wait for the first race, but our aim is of course to move further up the grid compared to last year.”


    Räikkönen’s team mate Antonio Giovinazzi racked up a total of 69 laps. The Italian registered his best time with a 1m31.945.


    “I think we did a good job, despite the difficult conditions. I am happy with the car and the work the team did, taking into account it was just my first day this year. We need to keep working like this for these remaining days, of course, but we have a solid base to build on.


    „After three months outside of the car, coming back behind the steering wheel is always tough, but we were helped by having a smooth day without any issue. I am hoping for another busy day like today when I am back in the car tomorrow.”


    Giovinazzi will return to the cockpit for day two, with Räikkönen bringing the team’s pre-season programme to an end on Sunday.

    Teams' reaction after second day of Bahrain F1 test

    Following yesterday's setback for Mercedes, the second day of the pre-season testing saw the world champion team get back to the top with Valtteri Bottas dominating the qualifying simulation runs.
    Improved balance for the W12

    Following the troubled start to the pre-season testing, the 2021 Mercedes-AMG F1 W12 E Performance managed 600km of running at the Bahrain International Circuit on day two of pre-season testing, with drivers Lewis Hamilton and Valtteri Bottas splitting driving duties.


    After completing only six laps yesterday, Bottas assumed driving responsibilities for the afternoon session, topping the classification charts with a lap of 1:30.289 while performing qualifying simulations on the C3, C4 and C5 tyre compounds.


    „It was a lot better for me than yesterday, for sure,” Bottas added. „I finally managed to get some laps and some clean runs to really learn about the new car and try some things. It’s always good when you learn and that’s what testing is all about – the opportunity to run different things and see how the car reacts. As a driver you use that information in a race weekend so it’s hugely important. If the set-up changes work or don’t work, it’s all valuable information.


    „For sure it’s windier here than we’ve had at a race but one of the bigger issues with the car is the rear end, it’s quite snappy and unforgiving. With the new tyres, it’s quite sensitive so we need to calm the car down a bit.


    „[On topping the timing charts]… it’s so difficult to say what that means. I can’t be jumping around happy - it is only testing. As always, we are just focused on getting through our programme and maximising the learning. You never know what fuel loads people are running. Hopefully by the end of tomorrow, we will have a better idea of where we are,” Bottas concluded.


    Hamilton took to the track in the morning session, putting together a solid run of aerodynamic data collection and setup checks. Despite a brief pause after a spin at turn 13, Lewis clocked up 58 laps.
    „It was OK, better than yesterday - not so much sand. The track doesn’t have a huge amount of grip and long runs aren’t the easiest but at least the sun was out! The balance was slightly improved compared to yesterday but we’re still working through certain things.


    „For today the wind did a 180° shift so the track was very different, and you could push in certain places where you couldn’t yesterday. It was very gusty as I found out at turn 13 and the rear doesn’t feel particularly great with this new regulation change but we’re still trying to find the sweet spot.
    „I’ve done 60-odd laps today and Valtteri missed a lot of track time yesterday so it’s not a lot compared to other tests we’ve had but we’re trying to be as effective as we can. We have less mileage than some of the others like Red Bull but we’re just trying to stick to our programme and manage the laps to try to be efficient. We’re just focusing on understanding the car, there’s no point in getting worried,” said the Briton.


    Long runs for Ferrari

    The second day of the only 2021 pre-season test session saw Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz working on slightly different programmes to one another at the wheel of the SF21. Between them, the Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow drivers completed 129 laps today, equivalent to 698,1 kilometres. It means that over the two days so far, they have done 244 laps (1,321 km).


    The Spaniard did a series of quite long runs, using both the C2 and C3 compounds. Sainz did 56 laps, the quickest in a time of 1’33”072. While his team mate continued with the long runs in the first part of the afternoon, the Monegasque did a series of runs aimed partly at a qualifying simulation with various tyre compounds.


    Commenting on today’s programme, Ferrari’s Racing Director Laurent Mekies said: "Another very busy day of testing in Bahrain, with almost 700 kilometres covered during the eight hours of track time.


    „The weather was much better than yesterday, although the wind was still a feature, especially in the first part of the day. We worked a lot on management of the Pirelli tyres over long runs and we got plenty of data which we will now analyse carefully. In the final hour, we also began to look at how the SF21 went in terms of outright performance and here too, we gathered a lot of useful information.


    „These three days are vitally important and we are taking a methodical approach, because the work we do now will be the key to how we get on during the season. Therefore the most important thing is to complete the planned programme and that’s what we have done so far. As for the competition, we can start thinking about that in two weeks time, in qualifying for the Bahrain Grand Prix."
    Tomorrow will see Leclerc drive in the morning with Sainz taking over for the afternoon.
    Troubled day for Vettel

    That was another troubled day for the Aston Martin Cognizant F1 Team. While the balance and the pace of the car was very promising in the afternoon, the morning session saw the team lose almost the entirety of the first four hours due to a gearbox problem.


    Speaking of his extremely short day, Sebastian Vettel added: “It was not such a busy day for me. We experienced a gearbox issue quite early on and that kept the car in the garage.


    “The guys did a great job to quickly fit a new gearbox and we got back out just before the end of the morning session. Doing so few laps today wasn't ideal because there is just one more day of testing before we come back here for the race and I am still learning about this new car. Fortunately, things went a bit better this afternoon for Lance giving us some important information. Hopefully, we can have a more straightforward day tomorrow.”


    In the afternoon, Lance Stroll completed a total of 71 laps, posting his best time with a 1m30.460.
    “Overall a very positive afternoon after a difficult morning for Sebastian where some technical issues limited our running. Track conditions were not so easy – it was still quite windy, but even in those conditions it felt great to be back driving and getting lots of laps under my belt. The afternoon programme went to plan: we completed the main jobs and ticked off the test items. There’s still lots to catch up on tomorrow, but I’m feeling pretty pleased with a solid afternoon,” the Canadian said.


    High mileage for Alfa Romeo

    Antonio Giovinazzi didn’t shy away from putting in the miles during the second day of testing in Bahrain. The Italian racked up a whopping 125 laps on a day that saw the team complete its testing programme in full, despite some red flags interrupting both the morning and afternoon sessions.
    Commenting on today’s work, Alfa Romeo’s Technical Director Jan Monchaux added: “It was another good day of testing, with 125 laps to our name. We were able to run our first race simulation in the morning: it went well and we learnt a lot of things that will serve us well during the season. The focus in the afternoon was more on our one-lap performance and on set-up work.


    “It was important to have another full day without reliability issues, so that we could run all the tests we wanted. Antonio did a great job, extracting most out of each lap, as he did yesterday. Now the baton passes to the engineers, crunching the data and preparing tomorrow’s session. Kimi will be back in the car and we’re very likely to run a similar programme to today’s to close off our testing week.”


    Antonio Giovinazzi said: “I am really happy with the work we did: it was a long day, with a lot of laps, but I think we ticked all the boxes on our list. We did long runs and qualifying runs and we managed to achieve all we set out to do.


    “It was my last day in the car before the first race and I feel confident about the season. We worked very hard during the winter and we are ready for the first round: it’s hard to say where we expect to stand, I think we have a good baseline but we won’t know for certain until the first qualifying of the year.”


    Kimi Räikkönen will return to the cockpit tomorrow for the final day of testing ahead of the first race of the season – in this very venue.


    Red Bull debut for Perez

    Sergio Perez took over from Max Verstappen on the second day of pre-season testing with the Mexican enjoying a largely trouble-free day, clocking up 117 laps with the focus on long runs on the harder Pirelli tyre compound.


    The Mexican was briefly sidelined by an issue with the left-hand engine cover of his car but after swift repairs he was soon back on track.


    Commenting on his first test appearance with the Team, Sergio said: “It was great to do a full day of testing in the RB16B and even though conditions are very tricky out there we got through plenty of work and there is plenty of development to come. It’s great to be working with the Team and I’m getting more and more used to things - I can already feel the potential. I have the morning tomorrow in the car, so I’m looking forward to getting in some more laps.”


    Head of Race Engineering Guillaume Rocquelin added: “Sergio got through a full race simulation today, including pit stops, which was very useful for him as he embeds with the Team even more and gets up to speed with all our procedures.


    “We had a couple of small issues – nothing huge and it didn’t affect our engineering programme, so in a way these are things you want to find out about in testing. Those niggles aside, it was another solid day. It is clear that we have not been chasing lap times and have only run one of the harder compounds, so there are no real conclusions to be drawn from the overall time sheet. All in all, two good days and hopefully we’ll close out the test with another productive day tomorrow,” he said.


    Second position for Gasly

    Aiming to rack up important mileage during the session, ahead of the opening round here in Bahrain on 28th March, Yuki Tsunoda managed to complete over 300km of running – on a mixture of tyre compounds - ahead of the lunchbreak. Meanwhile, Pierre Gasly headed out in the afternoon, spending the first half of the session on longer runs before putting in a strong stint on the soft tyre to finish the day in second place.


    Following another successful day, the Frenchman said: “It’s been another really positive day for me, with a lot of laps done this afternoon. We managed to complete all the high-fuel running that we wanted to at the start of the session and then some performance runs towards the end, with the softer compound. I feel really good in the car, especially compared to this time last year, so it’s really positive for me. There are obviously places we still need to improve upon, but I think we’re in a good place with one day left of running at this test.


    “The Honda Power Unit is working really well so far and we haven’t had any reliability issues which is great – I’m excited to get it out on track for the race. With only three days of testing – split between two drivers - I knew it would be difficult but considering how many laps we’ve been able to complete so far I’m feeling quite comfortable with the car ahead of the Bahrain Grand Prix.”


    After finishing in P11, Yuki Tsunoda said: “I think for me on the driving side things are definitely improving each time I go out. The weather again today has been an issue, particularly with the changes in wind direction, so it’s definitely been a big learning curve.


    “I’m really starting to understand the car and how it reacts with different tyre compounds now – my performance isn’t perfect yet but I’m happy with how the test is going from my side. I’m also getting more confident in high speed corners, as I continue to understand the downforce levels of the car more with each run we do. It’s good learning for the team, and also for myself, so hopefully we can put it all together tomorrow.”


    Tomorrow the team will conclude the final of three days of pre-season testing, with Pierre running in the morning and Yuki heading out in the afternoon for the final session.
    The most diligent driver

    While Williams worked with its test driver Roy Nissany yesterday, the team’s Canadian regular Nicholas Latifi got behind the wheel of the FW43B on Day 2 of the pre-season testing.


    Speaking about Williams’ programme, Dave Robson, the team’s Head of Vehicle Performance said: We had a busy day, completing 132laps without any major issues. The track changed throughout the day making comparisons difficult, but we were still able to complete some useful work. It was good for Nicholas to get a trouble-free day and to experience the car in a range of conditions and on a range of tyres.


    „It looks like the weather will be a bit different again tomorrow when George will be in the car to complete our pre-season testing. We still have a lot to do, but we are confident that we can have another productive today tomorrow and get ourselves into the best possible position for the first race.”


    After racking up the highest mileage on Day 2, Nicholas Latifi said: „It was great to get some proper running back behind the wheel. It was nice to push the car in the dry and knock the dust off from the winter. It was a tricky day with the wind, but it was good to get some running in these conditions as there was lots to learn.


    „As is normal in pre-season testing, there were a few half-spins as I was pushing to see what the limits were. I think we can be happy with the number of laps we completed today, and we now have a lot of data to analyse to be as prepared as possible for the first race of the season.
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    Teams' reactions after Bahrain F1 pre-season testing

    On Sunday evening, the curtain came down on the sole three-day pre-season testing that took place at Bahrain just two weeks before the 2021 FIA Formula One World Championship gets underway at the very same venue.


    Good working relationship at Ferrari

    Over the course of the three day pre-season test at Sakhir’s Bahrain International Circuit, Scuderia Ferrari Mission Winnow’s SF21 completed a total of 403 laps, equivalent to 2,182 kilometres. Charles Leclerc and Carlos Sainz shared the driving every day.


    On the last day, Leclerc kicked off the testing programme by conducting short runs on C3 tyres before tackling a race simulation. His new team mate Sainz completed a race simulation at the beginning of the afternoon session before trying out his new car in qualifying trim.


    Scuderia’s Team Principal Mattia Binotto indicated that his outfit has been able to improve its competitiveness compared to last year’s woeful performance, but he was not sure where the SF21 stands in the packing order due to the extremely short pre-season testing.


    "These were three very busy days of testing,” started Binotto his assessment. “One of our priorities was to make the most of the short time available to gain an understanding of the behaviour of the SF21 and we succeeded in doing that. I feel we have improved in many areas compared to last season. It’s hard to say where we are compared to our opponents, because this test was even harder than usual to interpret.


    „I was particularly pleased with the way Charles and Carlos worked with the team and the good relationship between the two of them, which has helped Sainz fit in with his new team very quickly. For our part, we have to carefully analyse all the data to be as well prepared as possible for the start of the championship. There’s a lot to do, but we all really want to do well,” said the Swiss-Italian.


    Setup work for Mercedes

    Although Mercedes had an unusually troublesome start to the final preparation for the 2021 F1 season, the Brackley-based outfit are confident that they can turn things around when the season begins in two weeks’ time.


    Valtteri Bottas took to the track this morning under clear blue skies, putting together 86 laps of long run set-up work and general balance learning. After losing valuable time due to gearbox issues on Day 1, he was happy to be able to make up for the lost time.


    “Day one was compromised for me so I’m pleased the past two days have been efficient and clean,” added the Finn. “Today, like yesterday, we had plenty of laps and ran good quality tests. I’m still not entirely comfortable but we’ve been moving forward and getting better. There’s still more work to do; we’ve collected lots of data over these past few days which we will analyse to help us make the car faster ahead of the first race.


    “Time is even more limited now with the recent changes but our recovery from the first day has been very good. I absolutely believe that the car and team has the potential to fight for the title. I don’t think the package is quite there yet in terms of performance but I have no doubt it will be. I feel like I’ve had enough time in the car, performing short runs and long runs, and I really feel comfortable and confident. From my side I’m ready and as a team, we will be ready.”


    Lewis Hamilton jumped in the cockpit for the afternoon session completing a mix of long-run and qualifying work over 54 laps.


    “I’ve never been a massive fan of testing, I just love racing! It’s probably the only year I would have asked for more days though, because we’ve got lots of work to do. We’ve never felt in the past that we were quicker than everyone else after testing because you never know what people are doing with the fuel and set-ups. We always just focus on understanding our car the best way we can so if I’m honest, I feel the same this year. We won’t know until we get to qualifying in two weeks’ time exactly where we stand.


    “Today we made some improvements but it’s still not where we want to be. I can’t pick out any one area, it just feels globally through the lap that we need to improve. I’m looking forward to getting back into competition and back in that focus mode. Our team is all rowing in the same boat - we win and we lose together. I’m just happy to start another journey together with these boys and girls,” said the reigning world champion.


    Andrew Shovlin, Mercedes trackside engineering director highlighted the low-fuel performance as the W12’s main weakness, but he was happy with the balance of the car during high-fuel runs.


    “We’ve had another day with good reliability where we were able to run to plan throughout the day. Valtteri was doing long run setup work in the morning and Lewis doing a mix of long run work and qualifying work in the afternoon. We’ve made a bit of progress with the balance on higher fuel and the car was more predictable but we can see from the data we’ve collected over the last few days that on race pace, we’re not as quick as Red Bull.


    “The lower fuel work was a more confusing picture, we didn’t gain enough and we need to go and look at our approach as far too many cars were ahead of us on pace today. We’ve had issues in recent years with pace in winter testing and managed to make good progress before the first race but we may have our work cut out this time. We’ve not got long before we’re back here for the race so we’ve planned a programme of work to try and understand some of our issues and will be leaving no stone unturned in our efforts to find some more speed over the next ten days.


    Extremely high mileage for Räikkönen

    Alfa Romeo Racing ORLEN’s pre-season came to a successful conclusion as the sun set on Bahrain. The third day of running on the Sakhir circuit saw Kimi Räikkönen notch the highest lap count across the board, with 166 laps to the Finn’s name. Today’s total brings the team's overall mileage for the three days of testing to 422 laps – 2,283.86km.


    The 2007 world champion devoted his morning to long runs and a race simulation while he concentrated on performance runs in the cooler conditions of the afternoon session.


    “It was a positive day from a work point of view. We got all we came here for and now we just have to see where we are when we’re back here racing in two weeks,” added the Finn.


    “ Times in testing don’t mean anything and, right now, we don’t know how all the other teams are performing. But we know how our car does, and feeling wise, it is better than last year. I guess we are faster than at our best at the end of 2020, but whether that translate into a better performance in the races, that we will have to see.”


    Commenting on the three days of testing, Alfa Romeo’s Technical Director, Jan Monchaux said: “Another very productive test day – possibly the most productive of the three - to bring our pre-season to an end. It was a flawless session in which we managed to achieve even more than we had set out to do: I think 422 laps over three days is a new record for our team.


    "Kimi’s programme for today was similar to the one we had yesterday with Antonio and we carried out some very good work on both our race trim and qualifying performance. It was important to have a positive outcome today as the conditions were probably the most representative of what we will experience during the race weekend.


    “The results are encouraging but we’re not getting carried away: we know there is still a lot of work to do. This was just a friendly game: just a milestone on the long road that is the 2021 season. We feel ready to start the championship and we feel better prepared than last year.


    "The car was reliable throughout the week and we improved on the weaknesses we had in 2020. Now we have ten days to study all the data we have gathered and find a bit more performance on both the single lap and over a race distance. Everyone will have raised their game by the time we’re back here in two weeks’ time and we’ll need to be ready,” he concluded.



    396 laps for Alpine F1 Team

    Alpine F1 Team rounded off the pre-season test weekend in Bahrain with 139 laps completed on the third and final day split between Esteban Ocon and Fernando Alonso at the Bahrain International Circuit.


    Esteban Ocon drove the team’s 2021 F1 challenger in the morning, completing 61 laps with a best time of a 1min 31.310secs on the C3 compound tyre. In the afternoon, Fernando Alonso took control of the A521, accumulating a total of 78 laps with a 1min 30.318secs on C4 tyres his best lap-time.


    Alpine F1 Team’s Executive Director Marcin Budkowski commented: “This was a very solid test for us. We had an intense programme, almost trying to fit six days of testing into three, and we accomplished all of it without any significant problems.


    “Our programme mostly focused on aerodynamic testing, especially in the area affected by the regulation changes, exploring set-up directions and getting the drivers accustomed to and confident in the new car. The team did an excellent job at the track matched with faultless support from the factories.


    “We achieved our target of 130 laps per day and found some decent performance improvements over the three days. Each team had their own programme, so we won’t see what everyone’s got in hand before the first race in two weeks’ time. That said, we focus on ourselves and we feel well prepared for the start of the season,” he said.



    Brilliant qualifying simulation for Tsunoda

    AlphaTauri’s new Japanese recruit provided the biggest sensation of the day with Yuki Tsunoda posting the second fastest lap time of the three-day pre-season testing. The 20-year-old driver completed a total of 91 laps on his way to P2 on the closing day.


    “Jumping out of the car in P2 today is a great feeling – of course you can’t get too ahead of yourself, as it’s only testing, but it’s great to finish the three days on a high,” added Tsunoda. “I’ve learnt so much over the last few days and collected crucial data for the team that we’ll now go back and analyse ahead of the first race.


    “I think for me it’s great that we’re returning here so soon for the start of the season as I’ve managed to complete a lot of running here now and understand the track well. We’ve had a few small teething problems but that’s exactly what you’d expect from testing – we’re here to work everything out so we have the best possible package available to us come race day. I’ll continue working hard over the next few weeks and I’m excited for it to start!”


    Pierre Gasly nochted up a total of 76 laps on Day 3 and completed 237 laps over the course of the three-day testing. The Frenchman posted a time of 1m30.828 on the final day which was only good enough for P12, but he set that time in much higher temperatures.


    “Now that the three days of testing are over, I can’t wait to start racing, we’ve managed to complete our full testing schedule and have a good understanding of everything. Preparing for the race, we know the car’s strengths and we know where we can still make some improvements. I feel confident in the car and I think we’re in a much better place than we were this time last year.


    “I think we know where we’ll be fast, and we have understood how to work on the car further. I really hope we can be in the fight this season and get some good points. Honda have also done a great job with the Power Unit and so far, we’re really happy with it – it’s a strong step forward, compared to last year, and the reliability has been perfect all three days, which is really positive. I’m excited for us to get to qualifying at the Bahrain Grand Prix because I think that’s when we’ll really see what everyone can do,” said the 2020 Monza race winner.


    Reliability issues for Aston Martin

    Ahead of its return to Formula One as a works team, the Aston Martin Cognizant F1 Team endured a mixed pre-season testing with reliability issues hindering their preparation for the 2021 F1 season.
    Ont he third and final day, Lance Stroll kickstarted the team’s work in a promising way, conducting setup work on high-fuel. The Canadian driver racked up high mileage with a total of 80 laps, registering his personal best with a 1:36.100.


    “I’m very happy with today’s work. We ran to our programme and collected lots of useful data by doing race simulations and long runs,” started Stroll his assessment.


    “We completed our job list for the day, which is a really good way to end the test after we lost out on a bit of running yesterday. We’ve got plenty of data to go over now to improve our understanding of the car, so that’s a nice position to be in – especially considering there were only three days of testing this year.


    “I’m looking forward to starting the season here in Bahrain. We can go away now and make more improvements before we come back for the race.”


    The team’s new driver Sebastian Vettel was dogged by horrible reliability over the last days with gearbox issues hindering his second day. The German was eager to make up for the lost mileage on Day 3, but another mechanical problem forced him to end his day prematurely when the team discovered a Mercedes power unit issue.


    “We got plenty of laps on the board today, despite an early finish [caused by a loss of boost pressure]. Lance did a good amount of laps this morning too, so there’s a lot of data for us to work with,” said the German.


    “My running today was very useful and the track conditions were better, so that was a big help in understanding this car. This test has definitely helped me learn where I can improve as a driver with the car and where the team can improve the AMR21 too. It’s been a good learning curve and I’m excited to keep progressing with the car. I’m looking forward to racing here in Bahrain in two weeks.”


    Impressive pace for Red Bull Racing

    Although pre-season testing has not always been Red Bull Racing’s strength over the past years, the Milton Keynes-based outfit was probably the most convincing team of all this time out.


    The team’s new recruit Sergio Perez was behind the wheel of the RB16B in the morning, posting his best time with a 1:30.187 and racking up a total of 49 laps.


    Commenting on his final stint in the RB16B before the start of the season, the Mexican said: “It’s crazy to think that pre-season has already finished, it feels like it only just started. I think this is the shortest pre-season ever in my career!


    „There’s a very limited amount of running and testing but we managed to work through a lot of set-up options and are improving every time we get into the car. I’m very excited about the season and I think we’ve got a good car underneath us but I still have a lot to learn in the car to get the maximum out of it. The Team is doing a fantastic job.


    „It doesn’t really matter where we start in Bahrain, it matters where we finish in Abu Dhabi. Now we just want to look forward to the race weekend. We’re going to take it step by step and be patient in the beginning and then things will come to us.”


    It was Verstappen’s turn in the afternoon and after working through a busy programme mostly focused on medium compound tyres, the Dutchman also sampled the softer compound late in the afternoon to claim the fastest time of the three-day test with a lap of 1:28.960.


    After his final outing, Max said: “It was another good day and we got through the whole programme. Conditions were a bit different to day one so we had to adjust the car a bit as we went along but from our side it was very smooth, as it has been throughout the whole test. I think we can say it has been a good weekend but of course that doesn’t give you any guarantees and all teams are doing different programmes at testing.


    „We always look into what we can improve and for sure there are still things we want to work on but I think all teams will have that. We’ll find out for sure in a couple of weeks in Q3 where we really are but in general I would say the car feels good and I’m looking forward to going racing.”


    Head of Race Engineering Guillaume Rocquelin added: “Both sessions today were identical in terms of run plan. As opposed to the first couple of days, today was more about trying to optimise the car and understand where we’re going, so shorter runs, more set-up items, a bit more time in the garage. We were still doing some development work but also really getting the crew and the drivers up to speed in terms of procedures and pit stops.


    „It was a similar plan for both drivers and similar results for both. Overall, this has been a positive test phase. Three days are never going to be enough; I don’t think anyone would say they are, but in terms of the time available, what we got out of this test was very useful. We’ve got a really good base to build from and we’re looking forward to coming back to Bahrain in a couple of weeks.”


    Russell finally behind the wheel of the FW43B

    After Roy Nissany and Nicholas Latifi sampled Williams’ 2021 car, the FW43B on the first two day of pre-season testing, it was George Russell behind the wheel on the third and final day before the action continues with the opening race of the 2021 F1 season.


    The King’s Lynn-born driver posted a 1m30.117 to end up sixth fastest just a tenth of a second behind reigning world champion Lewis Hamilton.


    „It was a very productive day and we put a lot of laps on the board, 158 in the end,” said Russell.

    „The team did a great job over these three days, we have had no reliability issues, and everything ran smoothly. Ultimately performance is what we are here for and I think we have a lot to analyse.

    „Some of our competitors do seem very quick, but equally I think the conditions did not always favour us. We have lots to analyse but overall, it has been a positive test for the team.


    Dave Robson, Head of Vehicle Performance, commented: „We can be pleased with our day’s work today. The car ran reliably throughout, which is testament to the skill and effort of all those in Grove and at the track involved in designing, manufacturing and operating it. We were able to complete over 850km of valuable running, which enabled us to do a lot of testing and to gain further experience of the new Pirelli tyres.


    „We worked through a good programme that included all aspects of a typical race weekend and which stressed the team, including George. Everyone rose to the challenge and is now looking forward to the real test in a few weeks’ time.


    „It is too early to comment on the pace of FW43B, but we are pleased with our initial findings. There are a lot of things to work on and improve, but we have a good understanding of the strengths and weaknesses of the car. We have a good opportunity over the next few days to identify areas that we can develop before the first race, and out of this will come some new test items and a run programme for FP1. We are looking forward to running the car again soon and seeing just how much we can extract from it,” Robson said.

    Lots of laps for Haas on Sunday

    Pre-season testing in Bahrain was completed with Mick Schumacher and Nikita Mazepin both in the car on Sunday. The German set 78 laps on the final day of pre-season testing, working through procedures, learning more on the balance of the car, and gaining additional experience managing tires on high fuel.


    “Obviously, it was a bit sad that this was the last day of testing before driving here on the grand prix weekend,” added Schumacher. „Nevertheless, we have 23 races coming up this season, which is great. Again, it was a good productive day for me with a lot of laps – that’s always good.


    „We’ve caught up with the losses from the first day. In general, I’d say we’re happy with how the test has gone. Day one was obviously a bit of shame as we lost opportunities for running but we’ve caught up and we got some pit stops in yesterday too. I’ve been able to experience day and night driving here, which was amazing. I’m very impatient to get going with the season now and I’m very much looking forward to it. It can’t come soon enough. I feel prepared and I’m very ready.”


    Uralkali Haas F1 Team’s Russian driver Nikita Mazepin jumped in the car in the afternoon, focusing on shorter timed runs on the Pirelli C3 and C4 tires before some high-fuel runs to cap the day.


    “The conditions were very nice out there today, certainly in comparison to Friday’s afternoon session – when the conditions weren’t good for getting the performance out of the car,” Mazepin assess his day. That said, for a rookie, it was a great learning experience to see how the car behaves with less grip. Today we focused in on low fuel runs for the first part of the afternoon and then we moved on to high fuel. We then finished off with some very productive pit stops.


    „Testing’s been fun – and a very good learning curve. We started with very difficult conditions on day one, then we’ve progressed towards a more grippy track which means more opportunities to attract a lap time. The year is going to be long, but I think we’ve got the most out of these three days and the team’s done a great job.”
    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    A mi el tema de las carreras sprint...no me disgusta. Yo ya dije que lo suyo hubiera sido probarlas en el 2020 dada la anormalidad de la situación pero hay que ver como se desarrollan.

    Sobre los tests, veremos, pero Mercedes no parece arrancar en la situación de poderio de otros años, Y en la clase media, pues tambien parece que va a haber tortas.
    En 'the-race.com' han hecho su clasificación: Red Bull/Mercedes/McLaren/AlphaTauri/Aston Martin/Ferrari/Alpine/Alfa Romeo/Williams/Haas

    Alonso carried his Renault to third place in Singapore. After Vettel and Rosberg wrecked their own races, he seized a podium from a car that did not deserve it.

    That is the difference between the great and the merely good.

    "Alonso has been brilliant all weekend, absolutely brilliant". "A driver not always easyto love, but very easy to admire".

    Yo, a día de ayer (si Aston Martin soluciona sus problemas de fiabilidad podría subirá muy probablemente en el escalafón), me decanto por esta clasificación:

    Red Bull/Mercedes/Scuderia Ferrari/McLaren/AlphaTauri/Alfa Romeo/Alpine/Aston Martin/Williams/Haas.

    Ojo, eso no quita que el auto [AT02], no sea un muy buen coche, según Edd Straw de los mejores plantados y de los que "perdona" al piloto, cuando trata de "abursarlo".

    Según, Edd, el mejor de lejos en cuanto a balance, rapidez a la hora de dar gas al salir, tracción, la RB16B y el "combo" M. Versttappen RB16B, letal.

    La W12 no llega a tanto, pero no sabe si por ser unos tests y LH no estaba forzando o porque los problemas en la zona trasera del auto son "genuinos".

    Otros 2 autos que le han gustado mucho son la MCL35M y la AT02. Los pilotos se les ve muy confiados y determinados a la hora de atacar la curva.

    En el caso de la SF21 no puede decirse lo mismo, según él a CS se le notaba falta de confianza, quizás en las manos de CL, con más experiencia con la maquinaria italiana, la cosa sea distinta, de hecho, a Charles Leclerc se le notaba contento las primeras jornadas.

    La C41 a los mandos de KR se comportaba bien en el "modo carrera", pero al ir descargándose, la confianza de Kimi en la misma iba disminuyendo.

    En cuanto a FA, parece que está "en ritmo", como si no se hubiera ido, y la A521 no le dio ningún problema reseñable a los ojos de Edd.

    Comparativa RS20 vs. A521: Vista trasera, se observa la elevación notable del tirante superior de la suspensión (según el equipo zona donde han empleado los 2 'tokens/créditos') y las 2 zonas que por reglamento han sufrido cambios, las pletinas verticales del difusor que ahora son más cortas y los "aditamentos" colocados en la zona de la toma de refrigeración del freno trasero que son más "cortos":
