Hamilton has endorsed Bottas for a long-term role at Mercedes and Wolff also admitted he is on par with the four-time F1 drivers' champion this season, but the team will make a decision on the second driver in the summer.

But despite his growing confidence and an increased "synergy" with the vehicle, Hamilton was careful not to overstate the significance of his second successive win.

Lando Norris, who drove the Pirelli test McLaren on Tuesday but moved into the team's own auto for Wednesday, was fourth fastest.

After securing second place behind teammate Lewis Hamilton at Sunday's Spanish Grand Prix, Valtteri Bottas clocked the fastest time of the two-day test on Wednesday.

"We knew that the front left tyre would be very much down to zero rubber remaining".

That pair will also be in action as part of Pirelli's 2018 tyre development programme, with 18-year-old prospect Norris sharing day-one duties with fellow Brit Oliver Turvey before Vandoorne takes charge of the second MCL33.

Those components should have lasted until the end of the Monaco race and then been replaced for the seventh round in Canada, where Ferrari plans to introduce its upgraded engine.

Vettel will kick off proceedings in the Ferrari SF71H just two days after finishing fourth in Spain.

Despite their lack of pace in Spain, where not only were they not able to extract the same speed from their tyres as Mercedes but were also unable to coax them to last as long as the silver cars, the Italian team have had the most versatile vehicle so far this season.

"As much as I am overwhelmed by the victory (in Spain), my mind is already in Monaco and I remember Sunday night wasn't as pleasant past year". "I think overall it's definitely been a slight step forward". No sooner would the race begin to settle than Esteban Ocon's Force India came to a halt, prompting the Virtual Safety Car.

Jack Aitken, making his F1 testing bow for Renault, was fifth fastest and just 0.115s slower than Norris after using ultrasofts to post his time in the last hour.

Hamilton is out of contract at the end of the season and his failure to put pen to paper on a new deal - worth a staggering £40m a year - had led to speculation he could walk away from the sport.

"It has emerged the FIA asked the team to run the new lights, which are in addition to the central rear light the cars already have, as they look to improve visibility for following drivers in wet conditions". I felt that synergy which I hadn't been feeling for the whole year.

Many teams used junior drivers, defined as a driver who has completed two or fewer races, as required by F1 regulations for in-season testing. Will it be Mercedes or Ferrari or Red Bull?
