his times are reported to be better than rossis, so i wonder when we will be shown these. but certainly we wish him all the best, and a great season.
but it does pose a question. an investigation was launched into the incident, but there has never, to my knowledge, a report issued.

Why no times..?
the talk from a lot of F1 diehards was, Rossis time is not representative.. Slicks..Blah blah..Extra downforce..Blub blub..wait 'til Felipe gets in the car, we'll see then..
Well..we're waiting..
Or is it just too embarrassing, so sweep it under the carpet and make like it never happened. :blush: :blush: :blush:

wosideg if you read Richard's post it says "his times are reported to be better than rossis, so i wonder when we will be shown these" in other words he is asking what the times are because CRASH.NET did not reveal them in the article.

wosideg. ex workmate who lives in italy. says that it has been mentioned in local papers (tuscany area). as no times were actually specified, it is unclear as to whether this is 100% true, or if it is wistful thinking. but i see little reason for doubting the reports. but would love crash or other site to provide these.

a little tenuous, nevertheless thanks for the reply.
Apparently, Ferrari haven't released any times for Massa as yet..If he was faster, that's what everyone expected, so why not release times..but if he wasn't?
The weather was good, he did 400kms in the same car..I think we're all interested to see where Rossi stacks up, I suggest it's higher up than a lot of F1 fans would care to admit.

Massa's test times wouldn't compare evenly because he is recovering from an almost carrer ending injury to his eye. It's fair to give the guy a break and not compare.

Even if the times were published, we would hve to do all sorts of calculations because if Felipe did 90 or so laps, did he do that with a full tank from the start or repeatedly come in for fresh tyres and a top up of fuel. Also, Rossi's fast time was done in the dry with almost no fuel on board, if Massa didn't get a few laps under those conditions, we can't draw comparisons yet.
