Mercedes to split daily test running again


Mercedes has confirmed that it will split its daily running between Lewis Hamilton and Nico Rosberg again during this week’s second pre-season test session in Barcelona.

Mercedes started the opening test with the usual full day approach for its drivers, but hit so much mileage that it elected to split each day in order to prevent fatigue.

Rosberg will kick off the outfit’s programme on Tuesday morning, before handing over to Hamilton for the afternoon, a process that will repeat itself moving forward.

Mercedes made clear that both would receive an equal number of morning and afternoon sessions, with running taking place from 09:00-13:00 and 14:00-18:00 on each day.
