Kevin Magnussen led Haas to the top of the timesheets on the morning of the second day of Formula 1 in-season testing in Barcelona, edging out Ferrari's Antonio Fuoco.

Magnussen put in a best lap of 1m18.101s in the Haas VF-19 car to beat Fuoco by 0.081 seconds at the head of the field, with the Dane taking over from Pietro Fittipaldi for Wednesday's running.

Fuoco completed almost one race distance through the morning as he enjoyed his first outing in the Ferrari SF90 car while Charles Leclerc completed Pirelli tyre development work in the sister chassis, finishing the morning fifth-fastest.

Alexander Albon improved to P3 late in the morning for Toro Rosso, finishing ahead of Alfa Romeo's Kimi Raikkonen, who was able to get out early after the team rebuilt the car overnight following Callum Ilott's Tuesday crash.

Nicholas Latifi finished sixth for Williams despite suffering a setback when he stopped at pit exit, causing one of three red flags through the morning.

Dan Ticktum stopped at Turn 10 early in the day for Red Bull, while Nikita Mazepin had a spin during the final hour at Turn 12 that saw him beach the Mercedes W10 car in the gravel.

Running resumes at 2pm CET in Barcelona, and will conclude at 6pm.
