These times show that a old car from htr is faster than some other cars I gues due to the lack of kers. If it is no obligation to use kers it is going to be 2009 al over again

Petrov ahead of Webber and Massa,or Hamilton?Pathetic.Red Bull and Ferrari are joking with the others.Until now they were the most balanced cars and now they are too back?!Renault and McLaren are on low fuel this is sure.

All teams have made a low fuel run on soft tires during testing at Barcelona. McL is still 5tenths off of Vettel's mark yesterday. Although on a washed track. And he(seb) said he made a soft tire low fuel run. What's your point?

Rob I don't know what time sheets you been looking at but where's a time from mclaren this week that's 5tenths of Vettel's best? It's more like 1.5 seconds and it seems like in the dry Redbull is about 6tenths quicker than ferrari and over 1sec quicker than Mclaren

Well said.


I'm so sure mclaren and renault woke up, and said, 'HEY, there's an idea, let's waste a s#!tload of our time putting in laps that mean nothing and will teach us nothing about the car or the direction we need to go in at this expensive test... Yes, that's what we'll do.'

Honestly, is it that hard to believe maybe some experience and off reason development actutally paid off?

Lulu made use of the drying track on a single-lap style qualifier before lunch (morning season) to set his best time.
His pace was 1m 29s/1m 30s when on longer runs.
Mclaren suffered further reliability “technical” problems in the morning.
