On the penultimate day of pre-season testing, Mercedes-AMG Petronas Motorsport completed 182 laps, bringing the tally to 1,058 laps at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. The team started the day with some aero work before focusing on building its understanding of the new tyres. In the afternoon, the team worked on its long-run performance with a race simulation.


 
•    Lewis was first behind the wheel of the W10, using the morning session to gather aero data and work on the tyres

 
•    Valtteri drove the car in the afternoon, completing a race simulation


•    Mercedes-Benz Power Units completed a total of 1,978 km today





Lewis Hamilton


Today has been a good day - lots of mileage, which is great for us. It has probably been one of the most positive days for us, we've really learned quite a lot. We've been able to apply our learnings from the morning to the afternoon, so I'm looking forward to seeing how Valtteri felt, but the car looked like it was in a better place. Our understanding of the W10 is continuously growing so it was definitely a positive day.
 



Valtteri Bottas


We got a lot of laps in today which is always good. I did a race simulation which was interrupted by the red flag, but it confirmed the progress we've made since last week. We're getting more and more prepared for Melbourne, but there's room for improvement and still a few question marks on where we stand compared to the competition.


We're focusing on our performance; the entire team is pushing really hard and keeps improving the car and that's all that matters. We need to maximise the last day of testing as it will be our final chance to try out a few things ahead of Melbourne. Today was positive and I'm hoping for another good day tomorrow.
 



James Allison



Today was a very productive day, either side of a trouble-free race distance we did a lot of good investigative work and in the race simulation itself, unlike yesterday where we failed to make the tyres live, we had good tyre behaviour across all three stints. We look forward to tomorrow where we will be investigating the range of tyre compounds and focusing more on single lap pace.
