Still hard to draw any real conclusions, but it's definitely good to see the times get quicker, and also closer. And I am relieved to not only see Merc powered cars at the top here, it would not be good for the championship if the Merc engine was too dominant. Even harder to say much about the bulls with the limited running they had today, but at least it's not looking like they've built a slow car. But could this turn out to be one of those cars that Newey has had a reputation for sometimes in the past - fast but fragile?
