Daniel Ricciardo broke the unofficial track record on Wednesday at the Circuit de Catalunya-Barcelona in Formula One preseason testing. The Red Bull driver was fastest with a time of 1 minute, 18.047 seconds on new hypersoft tires, setting the best ever lap in Barcelona since the new track layout was introduced in 2007. Felipe Massa had the previous record of 1:18.339 in a Ferrari in 2008 testing. Times set in testing are not officially recognised as track records. Defending champion Lewis Hamilton was less than a tenth of a second behind Ricciardo with the slightly slower ultrasoft tires on his Mercedes, followed by Ferrari driver Sebastian Vettel.
