Wow, drawing conclusions about cars and full time drivers from young drivers circulating 4s off race pace is stretching credibility to the ultimate limits of adhesion. Seems someone has slipped off the reality line and beached themselves. Pretty sure the teams are using the young drivers to test aero more than anything, which means instructing them to stay away from others, run consistent laps, don't drive over curbs, etc... just run smooth regular laps and let the team collect the data. Thus any differences are irrelevant.

Surely these results are purely a show of the talent of the drivers, they are so far off the pace of the full timers in the same cars. I don't think they tell you that the McLaren is the best car by any stretch. Just another excuse to bash Hamilton.
