Mercedes Rebounds On Day Two Of F-1 Testing

SAKHIR, Bahrain – After a rocky start to preseason testing, Valtteri Bottas put Mercedes AMG Petronas back on top of the Formula One time sheets Saturday at Bahrain Int’l Circuit. 77 Mercedes W12 to lead the 16 drivers that turned at least one timed lap during the second day of F-1 testing. Bottas’ best lap of 58 total was turned on the softest Pirelli tire compound available, the C5 compound. “I finally managed to get some laps and some clean runs to really learn about the new car and try some things. “For sure it’s windier here than we’ve had at a race, but one of the bigger issues with the car is the rear end; it’s quite snappy and unforgiving,” Bottas added. I can’t be jumping around happy because it is only testing,” Bottas noted.
