George, I was always a believer in Ross Brawn so I would have been pre conditioned if he comes out with a surprise car, but he/Mercedes running their 2011 car complete with exhaust blown diffuser and the new tyres their lap times shouldn’t even be considered let alone basing them/comparing them against lap times from the new cars.
Some teams might be concentrating more than others on taking fuel out and trying to set a fast lap time, but with only 12 days of testing before the first race that will not help them much in race trim when the real race lap times will matter.
