2011 F1 testing

A sprinkling of rain before today’s test began gave the teams chance to try out Pirelli’s wet weather tyres.

Have a look at the new tyres in this collection of pictures from today’s test.

    Pictures are awesome. Thanks Keith.
    It would be great to get some tire shots of cars returning to the pits. That would be a true telltale of how teams are really doing.

    Nice pictures. I especially like the one of Rubens in the Williams between the trees.

    Has anyone noticed changes to any of the cars? I can’t seem to spot any so far.

    The black paint on the rear wing of the Force India actually looks nicer than I thought.

  4. finally! Some real quality photos. (No offense to Keith or Julien, but these are better).

    why no McLaren pics?

  6. Brilliant pics thanks. That dark Red Bull pic is a must have desktop for any Red Bull fan!

    I’m rocking a Force India one at the moment!

    Heidfeld’s helmet looks perfect in the Renault. That overhead shot from pitstop practice is great. The giant red stripe marking the pitlane looks nice with the car’s colors. I kind of like how the four airgun operators have red helmets while the rest of the crew have gold. That whole livery is really growing on me. Especially now with a German driver, Black/Red/Gold is very appropriate.

  8. Excellent pictures as always Keith.

    Try and get a picture of the camera Button ran for the last hour of testing today. It sits on the engine cover inline with the raised sidepods. I Would be interested in how this camera creates an enclosed tunnel to channel air to the rear diffuser. Also would like scarbs to comment.

  10. Any McLaren Pics?
