Gasly lost control of the RB15 as he entered the corner, spun through the gravel and made heavy contact with the barriers.

Ferrari's Formula 1 driver Sebastian Vettel crashed his auto during Wednesday's testing in Spain and had to be escorted to the medical centre for a check-up.

Vettel, who had done 40 laps, was unhurt but went to the medical centre for routine checks. It said the damaged auto was sent back to the garage "for all the needed checks".

Red flags were brought on and Ferrari's plans of getting some important laps and data under their belt went out of the window.

Charles Leclerc says he wasn't pushing flat out when he set the fastest time of testing so far this morning. We had more laps on the board than 40 this morning so for sure it is not ideal in that we are losing time.

"I'm quite happy with how winter testing went as I was able to do a lot of laps and maximize my time in the vehicle", the rookie said.

"I think it hasn't changed since day one to be honest", Leclerc said of the auto earlier in the day.

Univision team deported from Venezuela after Maduro interview
BuzzFeed reported that Ramos called Maduro a "dictator" and "murderer" during the interview . Univision spokesman Jose Zamora said Maduro objected to Ramos' questions.

Sergio Perez was the second fastest with Racing Point while Vettel still finished with the third-quickest time of the day, followed by Alfa Romeo veteran Kimi Raikkonen.

Hamilton's team mate Valtteri Bottas reiterated the view he expressed last week that Ferrari were ahead and Mercedes still had work to do.

Sainz's teammate Lando Norris had topped the time charts on Tuesday.

Ferrari, meanwhile, moved to confirm the cause of Sebastian Vettel's crash during Wednesday.

Also Wednesday, McLaren said two-time world champion Fernando Alonso will be the team's ambassador and continue to advise its drivers and engineers, as well as "drive at selected tests to support the development" of the team's cars for 2020. Last year's pole position time at the Spanish Grand Prix was a 1:16.173 - although given the different circuit conditions and tyres, the comparison tells us little more than the 2019 regulations have done little to slow the cars over the winter.

The penultimate day of testing, before teams head back to their factories and on to Australia for the March 17 season-opener, saw another high-speed incident when Gasly went off at turn nine.
