The first day of testing in Bahrain, and already the fourth test day of the season, is over. In Barcelona it was Ferrari who managed to set the tone, but who was the most impressive on day one in Bahrain? GPblog lists all the times of the day.

Most kilometres - Perez

The lap times don't say much yet during the test days in Formula 1, but the number of kilometers driven per team says a lot about the reliability of the car. Red Bull Racing looked the strongest on Thursday, as Sergio Perez drove the most kilometers with 137 laps. In addition, there were five other teams that also managed to tick the 100 lap mark.

Pierre Gasly closed the first day as the fastest man on track on the C4 compound. Ferrari completed the top three with both drivers on the C3 compound. Red Bull was mainly concerned with the hard tires today, as they will also be used at the Bahrain Grand Prix in a week's time.

McLaren disappoints

For McLaren and Haas F1 the fourth day of testing was disappointing. Due to a cargo delay, Haas could only start testing in the afternoon. At McLaren, Lando Norris was in the garage a lot due to problems with the brakes. In the end, the Briton only drove 49 laps.

When looking at the laps driven over all four days of testing, Ferrari is on top with a lead of more than fifty laps. Red Bull Racing is in second place for now, but is hot on the heels of Mercedes.
