Louis Delétraz took over the Haas VF-18 during the second and final day of Pirelli tire testing Wednesday at Yas Marina Circuit in Abu Dhabi after Pietro Fittipaldi represented Haas F1 Team on Tuesday at the 5.554-kilometer (3.451-mile), 21-turn track.
The 21-year-old Delétraz recorded 117 laps, with his best time being a 1:39.069. The Swiss driver scored his quick time on his 58th lap while utilizing the 2019 Pirelli P Zero Pink hypersoft tire. This time placed Delétraz ninth out of the 11 drivers participating in the session.
Haas F1 Team’s morning outings focused on a combination of running Pirelli’s 2018 Purple ultrasoft tire and its 2019 counterpart, with a total of 51 laps logged in the process. Short stints on the hypersoft compounds followed in the early stages of the afternoon portion of the test, with Delétraz later working through a program of long runs on the same set of hypersofts. He tallied 66 additional laps through to the checkered flag at 6 p.m. local time.
Scuderia Ferrari driver Charles Leclerc set the quickest time (1:36.450) with Toro Rosso’s Daniil Kvyat recording the most laps (155).
