Sebastian Vettel crashes while Sainz goes fastest in testing

Sebastian Vettel crashes Ferrari in Formula One testing

WATCH: Vettel crashes during Barcelona testing, taken to hospital

Ferrari were the quickest during week one of testing and Vettel had recorded the fastest lap until his crash.

"Last week was very productive and also yesterday, at least we could recover some track time we lost in the morning".

Vettel's accident and its subsequent investigation meant Ferrari teammate Charles Leclerc was unable to set a time.

Hamilton, who will be chasing a sixth title this year with Mercedes going for a sixth successive championship double, did more laps than anyone before lunch (85) but was eighth fastest on the hard C2 tyre as he focused mainly on long runs. "We have some potential, we tested a lot of things, we have good performance, but we have to work hard as well as they seem really fast".

Anglo-Thai driver Alexander Albon was second fastest with a lap of 1:16.882, also on C5 tyres, with McLaren's Lando Norris third in 1:17.084. "There's still some margin, a bit obviously in myself I still have to learn and get more comfortable with the auto".

While Red Bull have impressed with their new Honda engine, Gasly said Ferrari were still ahead. I wasn't in control anymore and went more or less straight into the barriers.

According to Mike Freeman of Bleacher Report, most teams have a favorable opinion of Murray and are not anxious about that. According to Pro Football Talk , Murray measured a half an inch shorter and three pounds heavier than Russell Wilson .

"Yeah I made a mistake in Turn 9 and basically lost the vehicle, pretty big crash, one of the biggest crash I had so far".

His team said: "We foresee that the vehicle will not go out on track for a few hours". The accident brought a premature end to Red Bull's afternoon and gave the team's nightshift mechanics a heavy workload ahead of the final day of testing on Friday.

Sainz set the best time of one minute 17.144 seconds on the soft C4 tyre and completed 130 laps, the same number as Poland's Robert Kubica in the Williams.

"I think some race sims obviously that we haven't done fully yet which we'll probably do this afternoon". Ferrari, who dominated the first days of testing last week, ended with the fewest laps of all teams on Wednesday (Thursday NZT).

The penultimate day of testing, before teams head back to their factories and on to Australia for the March 17 season-opener, saw another high-speed incident when Gasly went off at turn nine.
