I wanted to see Kubica in Mercedes or Ferrari, but he may be much better off in Renault after all. The car is fast, definite contender for wins. Clever move.

Alright, it's official...We've learned nothing from all these test times.

Now all of the sudden Renault does a quick lap? What? Last year's slowpoke with a yellow paint job?

I don't know...Only thing we've learned is that there really is going to be a huge gap between the existing teams and the new ones, but that's hardly surprising.

Damn, this is just outrageous, when Lewis gets number 1, all people would say that "great job lewis, keep it up", when Jenson did the same thing, people just don't give a damn, or would just say "that is just testing".. So for me, good job Jenson, testing or not atleast you are doing your best and your job, keep it up.. Crash and the people around it is always biased towards Lewis. It may not be Jenson who is a threat to Lewis, you people should think about Alonso on a Ferrari, that is something to watch out.

We have learned that Merc is not a superteam, Sauber and Renault are faster than last year, Button is not outpaced by Hamilton etc.
No dominating team-should make good season.

Alonso always seems to be able to turn it on when he wants to. Sort of cool really. Might want to watch out Red haters this season.He and Massa will no doubt prove difficult. Cannot wait

I think this is the first testing day we've had which hasn't been badly affected by the weather so the times are probably a bit more meaningful today than other days. Taking Button's time as the 100% benchmark, the 107% time would be 1:24.4 so the Lotus is one second inside that but that is still quite a big spread. 5 seconds off the pace is a big margin. Remember last year that Luca Badoer was just 2 to 3 seconds off the pace and everyone was shocked at how slow he was.
