    Recap

    Louis Deletraz took over the Haas VF-18 during the second and final day of Pirelli tire testing Wednesday at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi after Pietro Fittipaldi represented Haas F1 Team on Tuesday at the 5.554-kilometer (3.451-mile), 21-turn track.

    The 21-year-old Deletraz recorded 117 laps, with his best time being a 1:39.069. The Swiss driver scored his quick time on his 58th lap while utilizing the 2019 Pirelli P Zero Pink hypersoft tire. This time placed Deletraz ninth out of the 11 drivers participating in the session.

    Haas F1 Team's morning outings focused on a combination of running Pirelli's 2018 Purple ultrasoft tire and its 2019 counterpart, with a total of 51 laps logged in the process. Short stints on the hypersoft compounds followed in the early stages of the afternoon portion of the test, with Deletraz later working through a program of long runs on the same set of hypersofts. He tallied 66 additional laps through to the checkered flag at 6 p.m. local time.

    Scuderia Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc set the quickest time (1:36.450) with Toro Rosso's Daniil Kvyat recording the most laps (155).

    "It was a pretty amazing day. It was my first Formula One test. It's been a dream since I was a kid. It's another step forward and the day went very well. We recorded 117 laps, which is a lot of tire testing and a lot of data. I did my best, and I hope the team is happy with my efforts. I really enjoyed it. Physically, I was fine. I didn't struggle at all. I got to know I was testing around a month ago, but I've been preparing for this anyway. Formula One is always the objective. It's been a great day and it's been even better to share it with my long-term sponsor, ADSS. I think we both learned a lot today. It's good for the future. It's been a day we'll always remember."
