Bottas set the pace in the early running using medium-compound Pirellis – the C3 this weekend – by lapping 0.251s quicker than Hamilton with a time of 1m31.110s. While he didn't make a massive improvement on his quick lap using softs later in the session, posting a 1m30.937s, this was enough to top the session by 0.424s. Hamilton's fast run on softs was ruined by the rear stepping out at Turn 3, which sent him sliding sideways and behind at the exit of the corner then across the track and onto the Turn 4 runoff. He rejoined just before Turn 5, just as Max Verstappen was on what should have been his first qualifying simulation lap. The Red Bull driver ran a little wide after being left room by Hamilton when the rear stepped out on the power and sent him onto the run-off area – with the stewards due to investigate the incident after the session.

There's a single I-Pace trim level for the new model year. Back in 2019, Jaguar became the first manufacturer to claim victory in three different categories of the World Car of the Year awards with the I-Pace . The electric crossover was praised for its good looks, exceptional performance, and every-day capability - and the British manufacturer wants to build upon these major achievements with the updated version for the 2022 model year. On the outside, it may look like just a minor refresh as there are no significant changes over the previous model.

Home Four wheelers oi-Promeet Ghosh By Promeet Ghosh Published: Wednesday, June 2, 2021, 12:20 [IST] The Jaguar I-Pace climbed the steep inclines, twisting tarmac and near-freezing temperatures of the UK's highest paved road to the 'Everest' at Great Dun Fell, in Cumbria, successfully on a single charge of battery. The electric SUV was driven by Olympic and World champion cyclist, Elinor Barker MBE.

Fillon added: "We will not slow down the P2s, we have done a lot [already]; now the question is the performance of the Hypercars."
