|9 April 2014 by TF1T Staff | M||Tweet
Lewis Hamilton kept Mercedes on top during the second and final day of testing at the Sakhir International Circuit in Bahrain on Wednesday.
The Briton, fresh from his race win at the same circuit, posted an unbeatable 1:34.136 during the morning session and then went on to complete the most running.
Jean-Eric Vergne's late afternoon run moved him to second on the timing screens, albeit over 1.4 seconds down on the dominant Mercedes pace.
Kevin Magnussen also made a late sprint to place third, knocking Sergio Perez down to fourth.
Ferrari enjoyed a terrible day, completing just 12 laps with Fernando Alonso behind the wheel before they found a crack in the chassis, resulting in them calling it a day before the session had ended.
Lotus suffered yet another engine-failure after just 16-laps, despite running reduced power.
