Testing notes

Jarno Trulli gets his first taste of the Lotus T127 today. The team have completed 174 laps’ testing this week, just 29 fewer than Virgin who were able to test throughout last week as well.

Two teams have now logged over 1,000 laps of testing – Ferrari (1,098) and Williams (1,043).

Mark Webber set the fastest time of the test so far yesterday in the Red Bull RB6 – will anyone beat his mark today?

  6. Keith, I know, Force India really confused all on this week already, but Tonio drives the car, not Jarno. : )

    Not sure why Fernando’s not in the MSFree live timing screens… F1Today says he’s done 12 laps with a 1:22.023..
    strange..

    Q. Is Sauber officially entered in the 2010 F1 championship. There appears to be a noticeable lack of team and driver info on the official F1 web site. If yes, why no info, if no why are they testing?
    I am so confused. And why doe sthe F1 regime and FIA not have a contact department for asking simple questions, like why does your web page take so long to load on older machines.
    So insular they are.

    I even tried to trick it into giving me Alonzo’s times but no go.. I wonder whats up.. :(

      Not sure how their system works, but looks as if they either aren’t receiving Alonso’s data, or haven’t added him as someone to receive data from, if that makes sense.

    Here’s hoping for a dry day, and lots of running from the new guys!

    An off-topic question: What is the miniature track on the north west corner of the satellite image. It seems to be a replica of the larger track.

    Why has it been built on a smaller scale at the same site?

  12. bwells said on 20th February 2010, 9:26

    Those are cart tracks… so I guess you can work your way up racing the same lay out… a great idea actually.. 8)

  13. Kubica did six laps averaging 1.19.4!

  14. Mariusz said on 20th February 2010, 10:03

    Kubica 1.19,4 (6 laps) wow, Renault has a great pace with this retro front wing. . .

  15. So, Button came out fighting then
