F1: Max Verstappen fastest on first day of testing

Red Bull’s Max Verstappen set the pace on the first day of Formula 1 pre-season testing in Bahrain. Nevertheless, Red Bull looked impressive throughout the day as the cars took to the track for the first time this year. Mercedes team principal Toto Wolff said their first day of testing was much improved from last year, when major problems with the car’s performance told the team they were in trouble and presaged a difficult campaign. But Norris gave the team some encouragement with a quick lap late in the day to slot in ahead of Hamilton and 0.625secs off Verstappen’s pace.
