Barcelona Test Day 2

Nico Rosberg laid down the Gauntlet at Barcelona today. With a time over 2 seconds faster than last year’s pole and over a second faster than Valtteri Bottas in the Williams, Mercedes finally showed its pace. Behind the two best teams of last year, Felipe Nasr put in more impressive times and laps for Sauber, with Vettel’s Ferrari right behind. McLaren-Honda finally had a good day with Button coming in 5th on the time sheets and racking up 101 laps. Nico Hulkenberg brought up the rear for Force India who finally unveiled their new car. Time is running out for last minute developments with just two test days remaining and two weeks to the season opening Australian Grand Prix. Image: Daimler/Hoch Zwei
