Mercedes brought an updated bodywork kit to the second and final week of pre-season testing in Barcelona. The team’s programme for the day focused on the initial set-up work and developing an understanding of the new aero package; however, owing to an oil-pressure issue in the early afternoon, the team decided to swap the Power Unit which limited Valtteri’s time behind the wheel.
- Lewis drove the car in the morning, gathering data on the new aero package as well as working on the set-up of the car
- Valtteri got a first feel of the W10 with the updated bodywork in the afternoon; however, his programme was limited owing to an oil pressure issue
- Mercedes-Benz Power Units completed a total of 1355 km today
