F1 Paddock Pass: Barcelona testing day three (VIDEO)


The conclusion of Formula 1’s pre-season testing program draws near as teams enjoyed their penultimate day of running in Barcelona on Thursday.

Sebastian Vettel set the pace for Ferrari, posting a new fastest time for the winter, but has more in reserve after backing off during his quickest lap at the Circuit de Barcelona-Catalunya.

Lewis Hamilton put up a stiff challenge for Mercedes to finish second, but he too didn’t squeeze every last tenth out of his car on his lap, leaving us guessing ahead of the start of the season in Melbourne.

Recapping another busy day in Barcelona, NBCSN pit reporter Will Buxton brings you the latest edition of Paddock Pass.

In this episode, we catch up with fastest man Vettel, chat to new McLaren man Stoffel Vandoorne and also hear from NBCSN analyst Steve Matchett.
