Alguersuari did twice as many laps as Kovalainen and co - He was obviously focussing on seat time rather than outright lap time. To be (just) less than 2 seconds off the fastest lap and 0.2 seconds off your teammate in your very first session (probably his very first drive) in the car is bloody excellent!

Just goes to show what an amazing job Bruno Senna did when he drove an F1 car for the first time. Just 0.2s slower than Jenson. Alas an F3 driver gets to drive in F1 first, having never even driven a GP2 car.

F1 is like most sports, run by money and politics.

Glad than Bruno isn't paying for a drive and will get to F1 on talent alone.

Being close in practice is one thing, what you do when a rae kicks off around you is another, we will see, but fundamentally it is a very stupid move, magnified by the daft testing ban.

If an F3 driver can get this close this soon, and Rossi impressed well enough to start ferrari rumours, and Senna got very close to Jensen's times quite quickly, maybe F1 drivers aren't as special as they're made out to be.

Alguersuari is 2 seconds off the pace. :D

Vs

MotoGP's Valentino Rossi was 1 second off Schumi :-o
(Equalled Coulthard's pace in Red Bull in 8th in a test session)

Now that's raw talent.

jamies already doing better than bourdais. good on him. i always saw him as a talent and i think he could be set for a lengthy career in f1. he has talent and money.
also, kovalainen did a good job today as well.
