    Bottas puts down a 1:24.654 before Vettel produces a near-identical 1:24.748

    Repeat to fade: faster and nearly identical again. This time it's a 1:24.509 for Bottas and a 1:24.654 for Vettel.


    02:39

    And the early lap times just keep on tumbling!

    Sebastian Vettel now down at 1:23.560 on his eighth lap of this run in the Ferrari SF70-H.

    14:05 Vettel improves to a 1m24.748s, which keeps him second, just behind Bottas.
    14:04 Bottas returns to the pits having just gone fastest again with a 1m24.654s in the Mercedes. Vettel stays out.
    14:02 A 1m24.953s moves Vettel to the top. Just Ferrari and Mercedes circulating at the moment, but both are getting some early laps in to make a solid start to 2017 testing.

    14:08 Vettel pits again, so the track falls quiet.
    14:07 P1 for Vettel with a 1m24.509s, which moves him ahead of the time Bottas set before taking the Mercedes back to the pits. The Ferrari is already up to 8 laps for the day, and he improves again to 1m23.509s next time by.

    Nearly an hour into F1 testing and 2017 has its first red flag

    All the cars are back in the pit lane, so it's not entirely clear what is causing the delay.

    Ah, but it seems Daniel Ricciardo's Red Bull stopped at Turn Four

    Red Bull smokebagging now. Stopped on track.
    Propably ECU problem after seeing the SF70-H laptime :)

    Mercedes stays in pit, because they fear SF70-H on track.

    SF70-H 1 sec ahead of Mercedes and 5sec on Red Bull.
    Time to re-introduce the engine token system invented by Mercedes lobby FIA.

    F1 show biz 2016 :
    Toto - "Ferrari are a real threat" .... Nico - "Awesome, everything is just awesome" .....Lulu - "Mental strength man, lifestyle man, I'll drive at 400% as ever man".... and then suddenly a wild Bull out of nowhere slams into a Ferrari.
