Vettel stays out front in Spain

Sebastian Vettel continues to lead the way during testing in Barcelona
Sebastian Vettel remained the man to beat with the quickest time on day two of F1 testing at Catalunya,

Having set the fastest time on the opening day at the wheel of Red Bull's new RB7, Vettel set the benchmark again late in the morning as the team worked on race weekend simulation.

The only issue came when the race simulation during the afternoon was hit by red flags and a heat shield issue but head of engineering Ian Morgan was pleased to once again see the RB7 leading the way.

“Generally it was good today and we got through almost everything we wanted to,” he said. “We had a few small problems, such as an issue with a heat shield. But that's why we do these tests, to iron out any little problems, and generally the simulations went well.

“The weather is forecast to deteriorate a bit overnight, which may make it difficult to run the simulations, but hopefully we can do the same simulations with Mark that we did with Seb today.”

Unless McLaren is sandbagging, they have not looked too inspiring up to now... Yes, they are a big team and can make a come back but up to now... I would say RB and Ferrari seem on the right path... Merc could be a nice surprise too... Williams? Why not. I can see them on the podium this year a couple times too... Just sayin'...
