F1 testing: Sebastian Vettel and Ferrari lead Barcelona day two
12:12 Positions and lap count:
1 Vettel, 982 Bottas, 94
3 Vandoorne, 374 Verstappen, 675 Sainz, 656 Gasly, 827 Kubica, 488 Sirotkin, 529 Ocon, 7910 Leclerc, 8111 Magnussen, 36
12:10 Talk of snow (not that we could see any, but we only have a view of the main straight) meant the day ended with a bit of a whimper, but Ferrari and Mercedes on top suggests there was plenty of normal running in the middle. Despite waiting hours to really get going, plenty of teams finished up with a high lap count, too, so they made the most of the best (cold) weather Barcelona could offer today.
12:00 The chequered flag's out, that's it for Day 2 of Barcelona testing.
11:59 Kubica still 10s off his personal best on that set of wets.
11:57 Magnussen also sneaking out of the pits now.
11:56 Five minutes left on the clock, but that isn't putting off Gasly from heading out.
11:52 Former F3 sparring partners Ocon and Verstappen come in, leaving Kubica out on his own, circulating on wets in the 1m32s.
11:50 Ocon now making it a whole three cars on track.
11:49 The silence is short-lived as Kubica heads out, and now Verstappen is out again as well.
11:48 Now both are back in the pits. Vettel just two laps shy of the century now.
11:47 Verstappen now joining Vettel on track for a bit of last-minute lappage. 13 minutes left until the chequered flag.
11:43 Worth noting this late spell on track means Vettel is now ahead of Bottas in terms of laps complete, with 96 down.
11:42 Ferrari now indulging in a spot of pitstop practice, as evidenced by the loud whizzing of air-guns beneath us. Gasly, meanwhile, is circulating in the 1m31s.
11:39 Vettel is on intermediates for this run. A 1m34s that time by for the German.
11:38
 
11:37 Gasly is also back out for more lappery in the Toro Rosso.
11:35 Vettel decides the time is right to take advantage of an empty, 6.7C track and heads out.
11:35
Has something spooked you, chaps?
