The 2019 Barcelona Test 2, otherwise known as the 2019 Pre-season Test 2, was the second of two pre-season tests for the 2019 FIA Formula One World Championship, staged at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya between the 26 February and 1 March 2019.[1] The Test was held a week after the first Barcelona Test, and two weeks before the start of the season in Australia.[1]

The outright fastest lap of the test, and the whole of pre-season, would be set on the morning of the final day, with Sebastian Vettel claiming a 1:16.221 on the softest Pirelli tyres.[2] However, arch-rival and defending World Champion Lewis Hamilton would just fall shy of beating that mark later on the same day, recording a 1:16.224 as Mercedes finally showed their pace.[3]

In terms of distance covered, however, it would be the Silver Arrows that remained on top, with Hamilton and teammate Valtteri Bottas recording 580 laps between them across the four days.[4] Closest to them in terms of knowledge gained would be McLaren-Renault, amassing 530 laps between Carlos Sainz, Jr. and Lando Norris, while Red Bull-Honda were at the back of that particular pack after two crashes for Max Verstappen and Pierre Gasly.[4]

BackgroundEdit

The first pre-season test at Barcelona had seen Ferrari emerge on top according to popular consensus, with Sebastian Vettel and Charles Leclerc covering 591 laps across the four days.[5] Furthermore, according to Pirelli's declaration regarding the gaps between the tyre compounds, the Ferraris were half a second clear of the rest of the field, although it was Nico Hülkenberg and Renault whom had officially topped the time sheets during the first week.[6]

Unsurprisingly there were some changes to the field after the first test, with Mercedes experimenting with a revised aero package for the week.[7] The biggest change was a re-profiling of the front wing, with the end-plates now positioned to guide air out from the car as the rest of the field's front wings were designed.[7] Indeed, the previous Merc end-plates had directed air towards the underside of the car, while a revised nose shape, floor and additional fins were added to further enhance the flow of air over the car.[7]

Another team with revised aero elements were Toro Rosso-Honda, whom arrived with a revised rear wing and T-wing.[7]

In terms of the driver line-up most teams would run as they had during the first week, with the drivers at Red Bull-Honda, Toro Rosso-Honda, McLaren-Renault, Racing Point-Mercedes, Alfa Romeo-Ferrari and Williams-Mercedes getting to run on alternate days.[8] Mercedes, meanwhile, would continue to swap their drivers between sessions, as would Renault.[8] Elsewhere, Ferrari opted to follow Mercedes' lead and swap their drivers mid-session, while Haas-Ferrari went back to running one driver a day, with test/reserve driver Pietro Fittipaldi not set to run at all.[8]
