Mercedes dominant again in Formula One preseason testing

MONTMELO, Spain (AP) Using its innovative steering wheel system, Mercedes continued to dominate in Formula One preseason testing on Friday, with Valtteri Bottas leading teammate Lewis Hamilton at the Barcelona-Catalunya Circuit.

On the third and final day of testing this week, Bottas was nearly eight tenths of a second faster than Hamilton, and nobody else was able to get any closer.

Mercedes is using a novel steering system in which drivers pull the steering wheel back and forth to adjust the angle of the front wheels on straights.
