Daniel Ricciardo didn’t just set the fastest lap of the young drivers’ test at Abu Dhabi today.
The Red Bull driver set eight laps, all of which were faster than anyone else could manage.
Here are all the lap times and speed trap figures for each of the drivers in the test presented in interactive charts.
The interactive graph above shows all the lap times set by all the drivers in the first young drivers’ test session at Abu Dhabi. It does not include laps in and out of the pits.
As there are a lot of lap times plotted on the graph you may find it easier to view the full-screen version.
On both versions you can click and drag on the chart to zoom in on a particular area. You can then use the slider which appears at the top of the graph to scroll through the times.
And you can use the check boxes at the bottom to show and hide drivers’ lap times.
The chart below showing the drivers’ speeds at the speed trap works in the same way.
Daniel Ricciardo set the fastest time of the session for Red Bull. Like many of the drivers he ran a short stint late in the session when the Yas Marina track was at its best.
Ricciardo set the eight fastest laps of the day and 15 of the 22 fastest laps – the remainder set by Oliver Turvey in the McLaren.
Among the exceptions were Jules Bianchi, driving for Ferrari, who set his best time just two-and-a-half hours into the test.
Paul di Resta (Force India) and Rio Haryanto (Virgin) had their running confined to the morning as they were sharing their cars with other drivers.
The test continues at the track tomorrow.
