Sergio Pérez was hit by brake problems in the early stages of the morning session for day two of Formula 1 pre-season testing.

The Red Bull driver completed three laps before he came back into the pits, with the front-right brake catching fire when he was wheeled back into the garage.

Frantic work ensued on both the front axles, with Perez losing at least 30 minutes of track time. The team sent him back out with an hour and a half left of the morning session to check everything over, with him coming back into the pits.

Max Verstappen was quickest on the opening day of testing by 1.1 seconds, followed by Lando Norris and Carlos Sainz.
