Pierre Gasly finishes fastest after day one of F1 pre-season test – with both Ferrari drivers completing the top three and Lewis Hamilton down in 11th as Mercedes’ drastically different 2022 car is the talk of the paddock in Bahrain

Pierre Gasly was a surprise name at the top of the leaderboard after day one of F1 pre-season testing on a day dominated by Mercedes’ radically designed 2022 car. Just 10 days before the first race in Sakhir, Lewis Hamilton’s Mercedes team unveiled a radically revised machine on the opening day of the final test. Hamilton, meanwhile, only finished 11th out of 15 drivers, but did complete only 62 laps – Gasly, on the other hand, completed 102. Yet all the talk was about the Mercedes car in Bahrain, with Red Bull team principal Christian Horner questioning whether his rivals have bent the rules.
