F1 » Abu Dhabi F1 test times: 17 November

It is as you were in Abu Dhabi, as Daniel Ricciardo keeps his promise to set the pace for Red Bull Racing by again topping the timesheets on the second and final day of the special post-season F1 young driver test at Yas Marina

I wonder why McLaren keeps Gary Paffet around. He didn't impress years ago when Hamilton was a rookie and he's still getting slammed years later... by whom else?... Rookies! McLaren, you have young drivers who may fare better then Paffet, so give them more test time. If Paffet was going to pan out for McLaren on the F1 side, he would've done so years ago.

irlirie69 - I think you will find that only the new F1 boys were going for quick lap times, the official testers like Paffett and di Resta are actually doing testing, trying things, heavy fuel, different setups and everything else they need to while they are able to.

d'ambrosi only .700 behind behind a red bull ... not bad

running light, running lower, lighter then usual - or driverskill - every one of this boys ran about 160 rounds so lots of rubber, who knows, testing is always hard to judge

I guess you were part of the test as well. Paffet would've been in a McLaren seat by now if he was going to make the grid. Newcomers can test heavy fuel, different parts etc, as some drivers had said they were testing different things as well and not going for just fadt times as Ricciardo had said.
