    Red Bull have gone home early.
    Even though Verstappen ran some laps this morning, speculation is that Pierre Gasly's crash yesterday caused too much damage to the test chassis. Or maybe they are just happy with the data.

    Video of the Gasly crash:


    And here is what seems to be the only video of Vettel's shunt yesterday, apparently caused by a wheel failing, you can hear the pop:

    And a bunch in the 16's now. Vettel with the new fastest of 1:16.221, Bottas, Kvyat and Sainz, all running the C5 tire. Only .05 more to beat the official F1 track record.

      Poor Gasly, looked like he mixed it up but he took a tiny bit of grass and you can see sparks from it bottoming out in the rear view.

        Yeah, he went back and said he didn't know what caused the spin but from the footage it's pretty obvious he put a wheel off.

        Ferrari has packed up already due to some electrical issues, so Hamilton's been doing short qualy runs trying to beat his time. He got within .003 and now he's trying again with a new set of C5's with just over a half-hour left in pre-season testing.

                So Red Bull... way down the list. Indicative of problems or are they sandbagging?

                I guess they did kinda break the car.

                    Yellows are supposed to be worth .6s too.

                            Amazing how they are all shrink wrapping the bodywork around the engine components. Beautiful.

                              Paddy Lowe is on a "leave of absence" from Williams and confirmed will miss Australian GP.
