I don't understand why they even bother printing these times, they mean nothing! Half the teams are running modified 2010 cars for christ sake! The only times that will mean anything will be the friday practice times in Bahrain.

You're right obviously Ronald, still I must this session looks positive to me because RBR have been way ahead so far. Nothing against Vettel but I'd like to see some close racing, and I know it's just testing but the results from the first sessions did indicate that the new RBR could have smashed to opposition completely. So I feel I can relax a bit more now when Ferrari and Lotus Renault are closing in on Vettel's times...

I didn't say 'once again a dog', the point I was trying to make is that we have no idea how quick the '11 McLaren is relative to Red Bull, Ferrari etc because we haven't seen it yet. It could be good or it could be bad, so as a result the testing times don't mean a great deal IMO.
