It’s a much chillier day in Barcelona today, this hasn’t deterred Alonso from going for it and posting an impressive quickest time of 1,22.144 in the first few hours of running.  He’s joined on track today by Button, Webber, Grosjean, Vergne, Van der Garde and Adrian Sutil.

Rosberg is out again for Mercedes the next fastest from Alonso currently, albeit nearly 0.5s slower.  Maldonado continues to put in the laps in the new Williams.  He’ll be sitting out this afternoon, with Bottas taking over.

Here are some awesome shots from the morning running via OctanePhotos, direct from F1 testing in Barcelona.
