2014 Bahrain pre-season Test Two preview

Pre-season testing continues this week as the teams are provided with a final opportunity of running in warm-weather conditions ahead of the 2014 season opener in Australia.

In particular, the four days of testing will be of critical importance for current and four-time World Champions Red Bull – having only produced 137 laps over the first two tests in Jerez and Bahrain combined.

It is, however, Mercedes who are the current leaders in pre-season, having set a high benchmark for other teams to follow. Both Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton produced the fastest laps of Bahrain Test One on the new soft tyres – speed that has led Red Bull boss Christian Horner to suggest they are the favourites for 2014.
