Lewis Hamilton set the fastest overall time with Mercedes at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit on Friday. He was ahead of teammate George Russell and the Red Bulls of Sergio Perez and Max Verstappen. The Mercedes duo set their times on softer tires. Mercedes won seven straight driver titles before Hamilton lost the championship to Verstappen on the last lap of the last race in 2021.
