    BAHRAIN TEST – SEBASTIAN BRINGS BAHRAIN TEST TO A CLOSE.

    After testing for Pirelli, a day dedicated to development

    Sakhir, 19 April – This time there was no need to extend the test session: at 18h00 local time, (17h00 CET,) Seb Vettel parked the SF70H in the pits at the end of the day's work. 67 laps were completed, the best in 1'31'"574, set on the Soft compound. Yesterday, the Bahrain GP winner had been testing for Pirelli, while today it was a normal programme of development for the season. "It would be nice to have done even more," said Sebastian at the end of the day. "But today we had a few little problems in the morning, which is normal for testing and then, in the afternoon, we lost some time when there was an electrical black-out in our garage." That's not unheard of during testing, when so many sets of tyres are used that the tyre blankets can soak up quite a bit of energy. "In any case, driving this car is always a pleasure," concluded Seb. "The times don't mean much, given we don't know what programmes the others are running."

    That marks the end of the first in-season test of 2017. The next one takes place in July in Hungary.
