Victor i think Brawn is trying to evaluate the new Pirelli's compared to the 2011 ones as Pirelli have made a few changes in the compound bringing down the time difference between the hard and soft compounds to about .8sec/lap compared to last seasons 1.2sec/lap on average. They have also said that there will be more rubber on the track, i don't know if this will be done by making the tyre edge profile more shallower or making the tyres wider, but it makes sense to use the 2011 car to see what the different characteristics there is between the 2011 pirelli's and the 2012 pirelli's

victor. the teams can run ANY spec in testing. but the fact that merc are using an out-of-date car is puzzling. they claim that they are testing tyres, yet the 2012 car will have different downforce, different weight balance, different speeds through corners etc. maybe it is just being used to get schumi and nico into the groove again. if times were considered relevant (which they aren't) we could be claiming that nico is faster than schumi, yet again.
