Ferrari yet to show full hand — Raikkonen

Ferrari yet to show full hand — Raikkonen

It was Ferrari who managed to put in the quickest laps of winter testing, with both Sebastian Vettel and Kimi Raikkonen saving their best times for the last two days.

"It's still difficult to know exactly where we are in comparison to Red Bull and Ferrari and we won't fully know that until we get to the 1st race", Mr. Hamilton said. "Sebastian is not a good actor when he is unhappy", said one confidant of the Ferrari driver. "Mercedes are going into this championship as very much the favourites", accepted Red Bull's Christian Horner.

Kubica decided to sacrifice his seat time to benefit the team. So to draw firm conclusions from the Ferrari showing might be foolhardy. Stroll was slowest of all with a 1:20.163 on the soft tyres.

It should be. This year's silver machine is the work of 1,000 people over a 12-month period.

Sergey Sirotkin completed the top ten.

McLaren as the wild card in the pack as a result of their unreliability but with the team still confident their chassis and engine package can deliver a profitable season once a happy compromise is achieved between the Renault unit and the MCL33's tight packaging. They bolted on the hypersofts and went for low fuel qualification mode testing. A turbo issue curtailed Alonso's track time in the morning.

It was a similar story of recovery for Carlos Sainz, who lost track time due to a gearbox issue. Mercedes led the way with most laps done. It doesn't matter how many laps you do, you are always kinda wondering - there's endless possibilities to try things, but it doesn't mean it's a good thing to try a million things.

Vettel had his feet up on the final day after banging out 188 laps on Thursday.

Teams will now head back to their bases to crunch the data and fine tune their cars before heading to Australia, with the first race of the 2018 season taking place on March 25. The team ran less than 600 laps over the eight days of testing, the fewest among the 10 teams.

Marcus Ericsson's off on Wednesday at the exact same spot - Turn 12 - suggest the C37 may be a bit of a handful for its drivers. This resulted from the improved performance of the Ferrari, largely through aerodynamic gains that have given all the cars more downforce, and the resurfaced track, which is less abrasive and more responsive to the Pirelli tyres.
