I am non the wiser after all the tests. McL, Ferrari, Merc and Lotus looked very even on long runs. RB was not doing much so there is a hope than other teams may be able to catch up with them (wishful thinking).
Live timing is great, shame the official F1 site doesnt bother with tests (F1 seems to be 50 years behind).

Was going to say the exact same thing actually - it's incredibly difficult to make any kind of prediction based on the combined testing sessions... Which makes me all the more excited about the Oz GP! I have high hopes for this season, hopefully it will be one of ugly cars but great, close racing! :)

Prediction: rbr and maclaren will resume their position at the top in melbourne, closely followed by ferrari and merc.

in other words... normal service will be resumed.

when you know you have a good package you can concentrate on setup without feeling the need to post "show" times.

I agree that RBR and McL have looked especially good on long runs, but Lotus have been decent aswell. Sauber have shown pretty consistent pace too I reckon. I am not so sure it will be all back no normal, I think we could well see a couple of surprises.
