  1. Force India will be hoping to get more running done today

    I don’t think Jules Bianchi is all that he is cracked up to be. He’s had one of the messiest GP2 campaigns that I have seen in a long time – he’s particularly dangerous at the start of the race – and now he’s gone and crashed the VJM05 first time out. I know he dominated Formula 3, and I know Ferrari are backing him as a star of the future, but I just don’t think he has what it takes for Formula 1. He’s a little out of his league.

    1. And he’s clearly too old now to be able to mature and improve. Chuck him and get someone younger. /sarcasm

  2. What is Mercedes hiding? Their posturing at this point says something about what is in their bag of tricks. What is the rumor?

    1. There is no rumour. They are simply using the W02 because they understand the way the car behaves. That way, when they run on the new Pirelli tyres, they are able to better-understand them than if they were using the W03, which is an all-new car (and so they would have to understand it before they could learn about the tyre behaviour). The W03 will appear at the next test in two weeks.

      1. Isn’t that what McLaren did last year but aren’t this year?

      2. Clever idea…now I am surprised that no one else is using the same tactic except HRT and little is expected from them anyway. Thanks for the info.

  3. If anyone’s wondering where Red Bull is, auto motor sport say the car apparently suffers from an electrical problem.

  4. apparantly ferrari and mclaren exhausts have been declared illegal by charlie whiting

  5. Mclaren are the only team to launch a car without a step in the nose. Have they got it right, or will they be at a disadvantage compared to the other teams.

  6. yes sorry, older brothers fault! small but crucial “il” difference!

  7. I would like to thank F1fanatic for providing great coverage of the F1 tests, with updates and timing. Good job guys!
