On the final day of Formula 1 testing, Charles Leclerc was in the lead in his Ferrari, closely followed by George Russell’s Mercedes. The Dutch driver was the only one with a medium tire (C3) in the top six. In fact, he didn’t even make it to the podium after Zhou’s final time knocked him out of third place.

Fernando Alonso has very high goals. After one lap, four tenths compared to Max Verstappen’s Red Bull show how close it is. And when it comes to race pace, his endurance and times only make him optimistic about the season. “It will be more difficult to have surprises. “We have to see that in the first few races,” said the Spaniard.
