    OFFICIAL #F1 Report: Sauber F1 - 2018 Catalunya, (Test 3), Test Day 2

    Test 3 in Barcelona - Day 2. 16.05.2018.

    The second day of testing at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya went well for the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team. Charles Leclerc completed a total of 139 laps. He put in an excellent performance, showing consistency and finishing in P7 overall with a lap time of 1:18.993.

    The programme consisted of aerodynamic tests, mechanical set-up work, and tyre tests. The past two days allowed teams to do a comparison test of the 2018 tyre compounds under representative conditions for the first time, as difficult weather conditions limited the running time during winter testing in Barcelona. The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team will use the data it has collected to start its preparations for the upcoming Grand Prix in Monaco.

    Charles Leclerc (car number 16):

    "It was a productive day of testing for us. I feel comfortable on this track, as we have spent quite a bit of time here this season - for winter testing, the Grand Prix last weekend, and now the third test of the season. We tried out various car set-ups, and tested new aerodynamic parts. It was also interesting to drive on different tyre compounds and learn more about their behaviour. I am satisfied with the number of laps we completed. We collected a lot of data and will be able to learn from this and apply our knowledge in the upcoming races."
