rob. well... it came up on another site. it seems that all or most cars aim to be on the weight in testing, so as to check tyre degradation. to allow for the added penalty of test equipment, ballast is taken out of the car, so making it underweight if a car wants to go showboating. in reality, anything goes in testing, illegal parts can be tried, drs can be used. interestingly vettel and button went out at the same time, on the same fuel load and both on hard tyres. button went fastest at a 1 30, and that was then vettels target time. he posted a 1 27. but i ignore such things as that, due to the uncertaintity that cars are both in race trim. it is all very well posting a fast time on a one lap flyer, but it is only RACE pace that matters, and we will not see this until melbourne. but i would like to see merc joining the front runners as it could make season more nailbiting.
