Pirelli test at Paul Ricard with three teams
It’s hardly a taste of the season to come, but this test, requested by Pirelli and running for two days, that started at the Paul Ricard circuit, is nevertheless useful in assessing changes made to the full wet tyres. Kimi Raikkonen for Scuderia Ferrari, Daniel Ricciardo for Red Bull and Stoffel Vandoorne for McLaren were all running last year’s cars, as they tried various specifications of extreme wets. The test got underway at the French track, which has been artificially soaked. The type of tyre being used from run to run is not being disclosed as the session was carried out as a “blind test.” By the middle of the day, Raikkonen had covered around 50 laps, with the session that continued until 5pm.
