wqhile it might be a bit of fun to knock merc, dont forget that these are only test sessions to ensure that everything is working normally. obviously there will be glitches, and it will be business as normal,as soon as the problem is sorted. macca also had a problem. why even chilton beat buttons time!

That would not be such a good thing to be fired by a person who has maybe half of your knowledge of the sport. Ross Brawn is in every sense an icon in his own right when it comes to F1.

Toto Wolff's only claim to fame is that he owns a sizable chunk of HWA AG, the company that builds Mercedes' SLS GT3 race car and their DTM chassis, and they do a bit of consulting work on the F1 side of things as well.

Perhaps Mercedes put him in charge because they figure he has more at stake in Mercedes' motorsport division doing well. His company's success depends on it.

It's a very nice thing to be born with a "diamond" spoon.

Merc is not the only one who had a day-1 problem --Don't forget that Mclaren had an oil-cooling issue which also caused a red-flag.. this was the same issue which killed Hamilton's lead in a Grand Prix last season.. although Mac have sought a different solution to the problem.. the problem has reared it's ugly head again. Difference is Mac recovered and posted a top-time.. but i wonder about their continued issues with reliability

Ross has said (elsewhere) that this car is a clear step forward --- and also I read elsewhere that Brawn says this car has some 'innovations' which are not clear yet and some which are 'under-the-skin'. I hope he's right.. but of course we shall see.
