Paul: "i've never seen the mclaren less than 2.5 - 3 seconds off the pace..." You've also never seen a season when the tyre compounds and and fuel load can make 10 seconds difference to pace. Its always difficult to know how to interpret pre-season timings, but this year we don't have any sort of benchmark to refer back to.
