For the third day of pre-season testing, Max Verstappen and Daniil Kvyat were back behind the wheel of the Honda-powered cars.
Once again, we ran a good number of laps; 109 for the Dutchman and 137 for the Russian. The work involved PU function and system checks, as well as tuning the PU settings to suit the drivers’ own style. So far, this year’s testing is a vast improvement over the 2018 sessions here in Barcelona when snow reduced everyone’s running time to virtually nothing! Lap times really mean nothing on the third day of testing of the year, but seeing Daniil top the time sheet is nevertheless good for team morale.
