Max Chilton surprised with the fastest time of the first of two days of testing in Barcelona. Racer Marussie overtook Lotus backup racer Charles Pico by 0.227 seconds and 13 thousandths of a second more, Lewis Hamilton.
The question of how Chilton managed to drive such a time is likely to remain unanswered and will only be the subject of much speculation, as his best time at the Spanish Grand Prix on the same track was more than three seconds slower. The Englishman drove a total of 60 laps.
Lewis Hamilton completed 79 laps throughout the day, followed by Kimi Raikkonen, who has a difficult day behind him. In the morning, his power unit failed, and in the afternoon he flew off the track once, so he drove only 21 laps, which is the least of all participants.
Testing will end tomorrow.
