Calado was impressive yesterday, he did half as many laps as Di Resta but was only 2 tenths behind him. Ok they were running different tyres but still impressive for his first proper run in an F1 car.

ty. maybe it was di resta who was unimpressive?

but little can be learnt from these "tests". a lot of systems and equipment are on the cars. look at the times. these mostly are drivers who have never sat in an f1 car, yet all their times are fairly similar. so f1 cars must be easier to drive than we all thought?

morgan. not denying that, but the new generation seem to have little trouble adapting to f1 cars, despite their difference to what they are used to. magnussen, calado sainz and valsecchi are ones to watch out for, and they are embarrassing more experienced drivers.
