Bando nearly equals his pole time on US tires. Not bad, considering it's a bit hotter than it has been all race weekend, nearly 7 degrees C.

Why is Bottas testing and not Hamilton as well?

Day 1 is done. I don't think the times are really worth much, with Verstappen showing this is not really about ultimate pace, but interesting nonetheless.

Leclerc's time was set on soft compound, that a great time for a rookie! Ferrari tested a new diffuser.

Would have been a high 16 with SS, which is .6 slower than the car is ultimately capable of, I don't think it was a full on quali run, I don't think anyone did.

If these are 2017 cars, then what engines are there in the cars? Engines that don't count for the season I suppose.

PU and gearbox use limits only apply to the races that make up the championship. The teams can make as many as they like, they just can't use more than X of an item for the championship. So these will be items produced for testing purposes.

Leclerc doing a good job as expected. I hope Ferrari has tested a new UP apart from the diffuser. Did McLaren have any reliabilty problem?
