- Lewis drove the car in the morning session, focusing on aero work

- Valtteri was behind the wheel in the afternoon, working on the set-up programme

- Mercedes-Benz Power Units completed a total of 1127 km today

- Valtteri will drive the W10 tomorrow morning, before Lewis takes over for the afternoon session

Lewis Hamilton

"It’s been a good day overall. It was quite cold in the morning, so switching the tyres on was a little bit tricky, but it seemed like a few people had similar issues. We were focusing on working through our run plan and we got through everything we wanted. It’s good that we’re getting in a lot of mileage and we will try to increase that over the next days as we continue to discover the characteristics of this car. That’s the exciting part about it – learning something new and being faced with different challenges. Everyone is working so diligently, I’m really happy to be here with everyone for the seventh year in a row and I’m excited for this journey that we’re embarking on."

Valtteri Bottas

"We did a lot of laps today and again managed to complete our run plan. We’re learning a lot about the W10 with each run and we’re building a better understanding of the set-up. The car was better balanced than yesterday, but there’s still a bit of room for improvement. As you can tell from the lap times, we’ve been focusing on long-run work. I’ll be in the car tomorrow morning, so it will be a busy evening for me, taking in all the learnings from today. It’s been a pretty normal test so far; fortunately, the car has been very reliable, so that’s good news."

James Allison

"We’re just two days in, but already a quarter of the way through the precious days of winter testing. Today was another very useful day for us, accumulating a lot of miles, proving out a lot of components and testing with both drivers several set-up avenues. The car was trouble-free all day and we added to the knowledge about the tyres and the car that we started to acquire yesterday. This permits us to build a a foundation for the second test where all the interesting running will take place."
