In the round-up: Lance Stroll says he has taken extra care to avoid repeating the injury which kept him out of pre-season testing last year.

In brief

Stroll avoided any “funny business” over winter

The Aston Martin driver missed the sole pre-season test in Bahrain last year after suffering broken hands in a cycling accident. But Stroll says he’s been playing it safer this winter.

“I’m allowed to go running,” he told media including RaceFans. “Actually, no one’s told me this, but I think we live and we learn every day. So I’m running, I’m watching my step while I run. No ankle twisting, none of that funny business, just running in a straight stride and looking after my limbs. I want to get to Bahrain testing this year so that’s the game plan.”

However he admitted he hasn’t cut out risky activities entirely. “I spent a bit of time in western Canada, did a bit of skiing, which is always fun and a lot of training as well,” he said. “A lot of time reflecting on last season and thinking about how I can come back as a stronger, better athlete and driver this season.”

Maloney quickest in first dry day of F2 test

Sauber junior driver Zane Maloney set the fastest lap of the second day of running at the Formula 2 pre-season test in Bahrain, a tenth faster than DAMS and newly-announced Aston Martin junior Jak Crawford.

Maloney’s best time of 1’41.501 for Rodin put him on top as drivers got to grips with the new F2 car in dry conditions for the first time. Enzo Fittipaldi was third fastest for Van Amersfoort, with Isack Hadjar fourth for Campos.

The third and final day of running takes place today before the season begins at the Bahrain Grand Prix weekend.
