Valtteri Bottas during the second day of the in-season F1 test in Barcelona, the fastest time ridden. The belgian Stoffel Vandoorne did a tire testing for Pirelli and drove the tenth time.

In contrast to yesterday took Vandoorne place today in an older version of the McLaren, while Lando Norris and reserverijder of McLaren took place in the most recent version of the McLaren MCL33.

Vandoorne claimed in the ‘old’ McLaren is a so-called ‘blind’ tire testing for tyre supplier Pirelli. In such a’blind’ test to know the rider and the team is not the type of bandencompound you will be driving. All data is transferred to Pirelli for further analysis. Finally drove the Fin Valtteri Bottas today the fastest time.

The difference between the ‘old’ McLaren MCL33 (2 at the bottom of the picture) and the newer McLaren MCL33 (47, at the top of the photo) is especially to be seen on the front wing and the new nose.
