    A year ago the new Haas team made its testing debut at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya. Esteban Gutierrez ended up sixth fastest with a time of 1:25.524, and he completed 79 laps.

    Today, on the second day of the test and with just over an hour to go, Haas driver Kevin Magnussen was sixth fastest with a time of 1:23.200, and he had completed 92 laps.

  4. Kvyat improves

    We've not said much about the handsome Toro Rosso today but it's just improved in Daniil Kvyat's hands. 

    The Russian puts on a set of soft tyres and does a 1:23.498, good for seventh place.

  7. Bottas in the groove

    Here's a snipped of back-to-back lap times by Valtteri Bottas during his race-sim run.

    1:25.241; 1:25.020; 1:25.661; 1:25.859; 1:25.455; 1:25.212; 1:25.502; 1:25.204.  

    That, my friends, is consistency.

    Not as many laps on the board today as Red Bull would have liked but they are at least showing good pace.

  17. Improvements for Palmer and Giovinazzi

    After forgettable morning sessions, I think Renault's Jolyon Palmer and Sauber's Antonio Giovinazzi are enjoying themselves out there. 

    Palmer, on the soft tyre, is now up to 24 laps and has climbed to seventh place with a best time of 1:24.198.

    Giovinazzi, meanwhile, has done a 1:25.983 on the medium tyres and is up to ninth place, with 29 laps completed.

  20. Post update

    The Force India of Esteban Ocon, who caused the red-flag stoppage before lunch, is back out there and hooning around on the supersoft tyre. 

    He does a 1:22.509 to consolidate his grip on third place.
