BMW flexed their muscles in testing yesterday with Nick Heidfeld half a second faster around the Circuit de Catalunya than anyone else.

They almost certainly don’t have that great an advantage over their rivals – and nor should McLaren be quite as slow as Heikki Kovalainen’s time yesterday suggests. But an impression is growing that BMW have got it right and McLaren haven’t. Will that be the case again today? And will Brawn GP continue to show promise?

Today’s testing line-up

Toyota – Jarno Trulli
Ferrari – Kimi Raikkonen
McLaren – Heikki Kovalainen
Brawn GP – Rubens Barrichello
Red Bull – Mark Webber
Toro Rosso – Sebastien Bourdais
Williams – Kazuki Nakajima
Renault – Fernando Alonso
BMW – Nick Heidfeld
Force India – Adrian Sutil
