HIGHLIGHTS

  • Russia’s Nikita Mazepin set the record of the fastest lap on his Mercedes Debut
  • He created the record with the Barcelona, the Formula One world Champions
  • Over 100 laps highlighted a successful Mercedes testing debut for Mazepin

The debutant finished all the laps with a record timing of one minute and 15.775 seconds. Nikita felt confident and was overjoyed for his successful debut. His fastest time was also just over a one-fourth of a second off what Bottas had finished on the same tyre compound earlier this week on Tuesday. The driver further expressed that it is his dream come true to drive a car like this. The majority of them were junior drivers. Alexander Albon representing Thailand finished being the second fastest, as he ensured a day littered with red flags ended on a good note when he stopped at Turn 10 with almost nine minutes remaining for the lap time, whereas Italian Antonio Fuoco completed all the laps ultimately by being on the third position. Nikita’s Father had last year tried to buy the Force India but failed.

The fourth fastest of the Motor racing test was Charles Leclerc, although his tire compounds and program were unknown as the fourth-ranked driver was carrying out tire testing duties for Pirelli. After Callum Ilott’s crashed miserably earlier this week, Alfa Romeo enjoyed a much more productive outing as Raikkonen crossed 100 laps.
