George Russell ended the second and final day of post-season testing in Abu Dhabi on top of the timesheets, posting a 1:37.204.

The Briton was behind the wheel of the Mercedes W10 for the day, clocking 145 laps - one short of Pierre Gasly's tally of 146, which was the most laps of any driver during the day.

Charles Leclerc was second fastest, however his day was tainted by a crash that put the car out of action for a period.

Lance Stroll was third for Racing Point, heading Gasly and Carlos Sainz.

After making his Renault debut on Tuesday, Esteban Ocon was back behind the wheel of the R.S 19 at the Yas Marina Circuit, setting 128 laps for the Enstone squad. 

Speaking on Tuesday, the Frenchman said that Wednesday would be more focused on long runs after much of the opening day was spent getting up to speed in short runs.

Alexander Albon was seventh for Red Bull, followed by Pietro Fittipaldi and Antonio Giovinazzi.

Nicholas Latifi was the first of the Williams runners on the timesheet, as his day was split with Roy Nissany, who drove the car for the first time on Tuesday.

  • Must have been fun for him seeing how his qualifying time was 1:38.717. So he was doing his fast laps at about 1.25 sec faster than his qualy times but still wouldn't have gotten him out of Q1, just to put test laps in perspective.

  • Still slower than 'driver no. 2' Valteri.

    I thought if he is sooo good he will be 0,5 sec faster, but he's not.
