"Thankfully, the damage is pretty light", team principal Christian Horner told Sky Sports television.

The Finn's time also proved to be the fastest of the day as increased track temperature and high winds made things even trickier for the drivers in the second session.
"The Red Bulls are obviously very close to my pace so I think it's going to be relatively close between the top three teams".
Stroll ran wide at Turn 4 after a wobble on corner entry, although stopped before the barriers and managed to get his auto back to the pits.
Sitting with another Spaniard Carlos Sainz of Renault, he also grinned and complained at the fact that the Barcelona track is used so much for winter testing.
"Every time I go training, every time I go to bed, I have one dream in mind and that is to win a race in Formula One and to win a world championship. winning is in my mind all the time".
