    Barcelona 1 day 2. Hulkenberg fastest in the Force India. Red Bull and McLaren seem comfortable with their cars while Ferrari are still finding their feet. Williams have done the most laps so far, though. Lotus did not run today. See Dave's post earlier in this thread.

    There's something wrong with your testing laps image there Bludd.

    Yup Mercedes are damn impressive going ~1400 Km without doing a single lap. ;)

    I think you used your laps graph from just Jerez test.

    Barrichello makes IndyCar switch

    Former grand prix driver Rubens Barrichello switches to US-based IndyCar racing after failing to find a drive in Formula 1.
    The Brazilian, 39, the most experienced F1 driver in history with 322 starts, will drive for the KV Racing team.

    Nice 'new' RB8.
    It's getting close to quali times in Barca with updates to the cars flowing from left and right!

    Oh, and HRT will not make it tomorrow with their new car, so they will have to test during P1 in Melbourne. Still improvement compared to last year and better than Marussia at least.

    True, they are planning to do it, but will they?
    Anyway they are better prepared than they were previous years and this is only good thing. Marussia is a big surprise for me not passing crash tests this late ...
    2 more weeks before we will get some decent answers who is roughly where with their cars :D

    Well, if Nick Wirth were still with them he'd probably just said said "fuck it, let's do the race with CFD too!"

    Marussia could surprise us with being good, but I wouldn't bet on it.

    LOL at CFD race, in our place it's called video game!

    Anyway they might surprise, at least as second team with pretty nose on their car. I expect their new car to be quite a big departure from last year machine, otherwise they shouldn't have many problems passing crash tests.

    Bear in mind that they have entered into a similar type of technical arrangement with McLaren as Force India did a number of years ago. I wouldn't expect them to leap into midfield, but I'd wager them being faster than HRT once they get on top of the car.

    Coincidentally, rumour has it that they will be he only other team with a low, un-stepped nose.
