what with the fire on nicos car yesterday, and the burnt bodywork, lulu must be getting worried.

but really, it is hard to understand why an operation the size of merc gp cannot forsee such problems.

however, this is testing and problems should be expected.

Lewis must be the unluckiest driver around at the moment. Lets hope Mercs can get their act together before Barcelona, as Lewis was sitting third over both days before he went off. Not bad as it was his first drive in the WO4 with only 11 laps completed.

The smooth operator in the MP4-28 is looking good Perez will find JB a a different challenge compared to Kobi.

After all said and done this is testing, if there are some inherent design problems then the teams want to find and fix them now, not come lights out in Melbourne.
Lewis was 'on it', exploring the limits of the car, and that was good to see.
I know we shouldn't extrapolate from Test Times, but on this evidence, he's going to be there or there abouts.
BRING IT ON!!!

I wonder if the rear wing will fall off tomorrow? It's rediculous that Merc would let a wiring harness touch the exhaust and let a brake line let loose! These are not difficult issues to check and prevent before letting the car out. Schumie must be smiling!
