Update from May 21, 2:30 p.m .:

Charles Leclerc and Max Verstappen also fought a close duel before qualifying for Formula 1 in Spain, but Mercedes seems to be gradually returning to the top group.

On Saturday afternoon, however, the Mercedes duo was only two tenths of a second from the top: The young George Russell was third again a little faster than record world champion Lewis Hamilton.

Mercedes, so far clearly the third force, wants to turn things around with some updates in Barcelona.

Sebastian Vettel only finished the practice session in twelfth place, so the completely revised Aston Martin didn't bring any real improvement at first.

The car is still the focus this weekend: Because of the great similarity to the RB18, Vettel's team was offensively accused of data theft by Red Bull.

However, the FIA ​​​​completed an investigation and cleared Aston Martin of the suspicion.

Barcelona – Formula 1 continues this weekend with the Spanish Grand Prix.

Before the race on Sunday, qualifying is on the program in Barcelona (Saturday, 4 p.m., here in the live ticker).

Mercedes is suddenly back in the mix for the front seats and Aston Martin around Sebastian Vettel has to be accused of data theft.

As every year, the teams had built numerous new parts on their cars before the Spanish Grand Prix (Sunday, 3 p.m. / Sky), after five races of the season the time for the updates had come.

Ferrari obviously didn't do anything wrong, and the start was no cause for concern for world champion Max Verstappen and Red Bull either: three tenths of a second behind Charles Leclerc on a Friday is not very meaningful.

Between the rivals, however, Mercedes caused a stir.

"We'll see this weekend if we're on the right track," Lewis Hamilton said before training.

At the end of the day, places two and three were up for George Russell and the record world champion.

Russell was just over a tenth of a second behind.

It was a remarkably good day for the Silver Arrows, who have pretty much been a third force so far.

Verstappen finished the training session in fifth place.

The Dutchman has won three of the five races of the season so far, most recently two in a row.

However, since he also had to retire twice with technical problems, Leclerc still clearly leads the driver standings (104 to 85 points).

"You now have to clarify how this incredible copy came about," said Red Bulls motorsport consultant Helmut Marko on Sky: "You have to take into account that seven people were poached from us and that our chief aerodynamicist paid a disproportionately high fee to Aston Martin was pulled."

In addition, there is even "evidence that data was downloaded," said Marko, indicating that the ex-employees took Red Bull's intellectual property with them to the competition.

However, the World Automobile Association has already completed an investigation and certified Aston Martin not to have violated any rules.

However, the topic does not seem to be over yet.

Friday was also a good start for Mick Schumacher with tenth place.

In contrast to the competition, its Haas racing team does not use new parts on the car in Spain.
