sprulz: Day one, Max Chilton is the fastest. Day two, Maldonado is the fastest. WHAT IS THIS SORCERY.


That's a good point, when Crasdonado's money runs out he could try acting, as he has a good look for a Harry Potter bad guy!

Funny (and also a bit sad) to think that Mercedes have the luxury to test 'sound enhancing equipment', while the other teams are struggling just to get close to them on super soft, super sticky, disintegrate-after three-laps tyres.

Maybe next they'll test whether they can install X boxes to keep their drivers entertained during races...

tommy. i am bemused by some of your "comments"!
first of all, fia ASKED merc and others to test the megaphone exhausts. secondly, the use of same would not have any effect on performance, other than having the monkey seat removed, and in fact, even with normal exhaust, merc had abandoned it.
finally, most teams were not in fact using the super softs, and those that did, were getting over 10 laps out of them.

and remember, this is just TESTING, and NOT a race or quali.

Believe it or not, I am fully aware of the purpose of the tests - just a (clearly) feeble attempt at humour...
