    I was looking to the tables and nothing surprising until I read this

    Rodolfo Gonzalez – Lotus

    The green lotus just 4 seconds apart.

    Bottas posted his best time with which exhaust system?

    Interesting that McLaren, well, Paffett, are/is below the Renault and Sauber.

    Actually, it’s probably not that interesting. You would expect that from a team that is using this as a test exercise.
