Sebastian Vettel topped the standings during the first day of tests in Abu Dhabi

The drivers had the chance to test both with the 2018 and 2019 Pirelli's compound. The italian tyres manufacturer showed today how the Pirelli Rainbow evolves for next year, with the compunds named after numbers from the hardest to the softest.

It was a "first day" for several drivers: from the ones who worked on track to who started wearing the new colors in the Paddock, there are a lot of changes for next year's grid. Today Kimi Raikkonen, Lance Stroll, Lando Norris, Robert Kubica and George Russell all made their debut as the official drivers for their new team. Instead, Sean Galael and Pietro Fittipaldi (who debuted for the first time behind a F1 wheel) tested for Toro Rosso and Haas

Carlos Sainz, Charles Leclerc, Antonio Giovinazzi, Esteban Ocon and others showed around in the Paddock with their new colors, ready to start a new adventure with their respective teams. Some of them will be behind the wheel tomorrow. 

Vettel led the group with a fastest time of 1.36.812s, but Sean Galael was the busiest on track with 150 laps.
