The promising young racing driver Lando Norris has topped this mornings post-season test at the Yas Marina Circuit

just over half way through the session with a 1:49.084 beating Jack Aitken and Louis Deletraz by over a tenth of a second. Santino Ferrucci set the first competitive lap around the 15-minute mark into the test session, the majority of teams were more concerned with their long run pace rather than outright lap times.

Sadly Nyck De Vries returned to the pits after just two laps with engine trouble with mechanics reportedly swarming the car once it arrived back into the pit garage.  

Jack Aitken took the top spot after the first half hour, Alex Alon was in P2 soon after, But the talented Norris Grabbed P1 just at the half way mark and held the position until the end of the test session.

Aitken grabbed the top spot just after the half-hour mark, with Alex Albon slotting into P2 a little while later, but at the halfway mark Norris grabbed P1 and held it for the remainder of the session, with Delétraz popping into P3 just before the 2-hour mark.

 

This afternoons session will start at 17:15 (GMT+4).
