  1. Aww… the poor refuelling guy. There’s nowhere for him to stick his hose any more. He doesn’t even have a hose!

    He’s just standing where he used to, forlorn, watching everyone else do their work:

  2. What is the black thing sticking up from the roll hoop/air intake on the Ferraris?

    1. I’ve wondered that as well. Is it some sort of monitor / sensor for air flow?

  3. Does anybody know if paul di resta is running in the force india at this test at all? i thought i read last week that he was.

  4. After the spy shot I was not a fan of the Lotus livery, but I need not have worried it looks fantastic..! Would love to see an alternate for the Monaco Grand Prix using the black with gold trim..

  5. I am confused. I (think I) see pictures of the Ferrari with and without the sharkfin. Were they just testing the difference? Can it be changed so easily?

    If it can be changed easily, would they be allowed to change it during the season between races? Or even between qual and race?

      Of course.

      Nope. Parc ferme conditions when qualifying gets under way.

      1. whoops, completely forgot those sort of tags don’t work here

  6. Mercedes are running with the Red Bull style bulges on the nosecone again…

    Keith, is it possible to get some short videos?
    I would like, and if may speak for the rest of us, f1 cars passing the front strait, or breaking down in a corner.
    Much obliged.

    1. I’m afraid not – I explained why here the other day: Live from Barcelona

  8. Nineteen guys to change 4 tyres…someone call NASCAR pit crew

  9. Pictures are really nice but what happened to the hi-res??

  10. Thanks again for some great pics…
