    Such a pretty track. I hope there’s some nice sunshine for the remaining days so we get some shots of the cars against the gorgeous backdrop of Tuscan fields and green mountains.

    I prefer Force India’s and Ferrari’s new noses – although the VJM05’s nose does look fat from the front!

    At the time of posting:
    No pictures of Sauber – It must be a conspiracy after they joined forces with a football team ;)

    @bradley13 : That’s because they were running an extensive revised C31. So might be reason for there absence I guess. But would love to see a C31 pic at Mugello. Somehow the official F1 site is not opening(but its not down). Don’t know if anyone else is having a prob with the site. So lets wait for Keith to put up some C31 pics. ;)

      Its a small Picture, however the upgrades I can spot is that they have added a monkey seat wing in the middle of the rear spoiler, they have reverted to the small cooling vent at the rear as opposed to the huge RedBull style one they ran in Bahrain, but that might just be a weather condition tuning part, and they are running different side-pod deflector barge board post things, where the previous design just ran straight across in a horizontal fashion from the post to the cockpit along the top of the side-pod is now flirting a design that hugs the side-pod tighter along the curve.

      Visually it seems they’ve made some progress, I expect the other teams to not make nearly the same amount of visual upgrades because they will be focussing more on the setup aspect and little engineering bits for the suspension and what not to aid with set-up which seems to be a big focus of the teams this year then it has been for a long time.
