MNick you do realise that is last years HRT right? And as such its time is completely and utterly irrelevant. In fact most of those times are irrelevant. How do people not get this yet?

test times mean jack ****!!!
one team could be running on fumes seeing how fast they can go flat out just to gain sponsers (like sauber last year)
or another team can have a full tank testing brakes or reliability!!!
and you got to ask yourself why is he a pay driver???
he is because thats the only chance he has to drive an f1 car..
liuzzi is a brilliant choice to have and if was my team the other seat would be filled by chandock or the excellent anthony davidson!!!!!!!!!!

Today's conditions were pretty poor and no-one did a lot of running. It also seemed to be broken up a bit by red flags with cars stopping on the circuit. Strangely one time it was red flagged when Kobayashi stopped on track, and the Autosport feed said they'd been testing its "low fuel tolerance" and that all the teams would be doing this over the next few days. It seems somewhat inconsiderate to deliberately run the car until it runs dry. knowing it will cause a red flag and ruin anyone else's runs.
