F1 Testing Results: Red Bull BEATEN as rivals unleash searing day two pace

Outgoing Ferrari driver Carlos Sainz set the timing sheets alight on day two of testing, putting in a lap time good enough to put him ahead of Red Bull's Sergio Perez in Bahrain.

The afternoon session was extended following the cancellation of day two's morning session, meaning Formula 1 fans were treated to over five hours of on-track action at the Bahrain International Circuit.

Day two's red flag was caused by yet more drain cover drama, as Charles Leclerc and Lewis Hamilton ran over and destroyed a cover on turn 11, with Ferrari having to use a spare floor on their car ahead of the afternoon.
