The Italian driver completed a total of 120 laps throughout the day, finishing in fourth place with a laptime of 1:17.558 on hypersoft tyres. The Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team ran through the planned programme efficiently. It consisted of mechanical set-up work, testing of new aerodynamic parts, as well as runs on various tyre compounds. The team is now heading into the Formula One summer break, and will be back on track for the next race – the 2018 FIA Formula One Belgian Grand Prix at Spa-Francorchamps.

Antonio Giovinazzi (car number 36):
“I am very happy with how the day went. It was good to be back in the car after completing FP1 for the Alfa Romeo Sauber F1 Team last week, and spending a day of testing with Ferrari yesterday. With a full day in the C37, I feel very comfortable and have learned a lot about its behaviour on track. We completed the planned programme which was our target, so I am very pleased. The team has done a fantastic job in developing the car. With the data that we collected today, they can hopefully continue to work in that direction. I look forward to being in the car again.”
