Ferrari’s Sebastian Vettel fastest at F1’s wet tyre test for Pirelli

Sebastian Vettel ended Pirelli’s two-day wet tyre test in France as the quickest driver. The four-times world champion, who took over testing duties from Ferrari team-mate Kimi Raikkonen on Tuesday, completed 134 laps at the Paul Ricard circuit.

Pirelli, Formula One’s sole tyre supplier, called for the test in order to gather data on their wet tyre, and a total of 659 laps were completed.

Paul Ricard’s variable sprinkler system allowed Pirelli to test with different amounts of water on the track in order to simulate variable conditions. Ferrari, Red Bull and McLaren participated in the test with all three teams using last year’s car.

Vettel’s best effort of 1min 06.750sec was marginally quicker than the Red Bull of Daniil Kvyat. McLaren’s reserve driver Stoffel Vandoorne, who participated in both days of track action, was one second slower than Vettel.

The first pre-season test begins in Barcelona on 22 February while the season starts in Melbourne four weeks later.
