Formula 1: Mercedes conduct two-day test – BBC Sport

Valtteri Bottas

Mercedes are conducting a two-day test at Silverstone this week in preparation for the resumption of the Formula 1 season next month.

The world champions are running a two-year-old car, permitted by F1’s testing restrictions, so drivers can “blow off the cobwebs” after a three-month break.

The team will also practise the social-distancing protocols organised by F1 to ensure the season can run safely.

Valtteri Bottas will drive on Tuesday, and Lewis Hamilton on Wednesday.
