  1. surely Razia will get Thursday and Friday. Looks like Bianchi has a big day on Friday to impress

    1. @folyeger I don’t think they’ll be looking for anyone to impress yet!

  2. I had forgotten that testing starts on the 5th! This has made me more happy than words can express!

  3. ‘Lewis Hamilton and Sergio Perez will have their first runs for their new teams on Tuesday’
    Shouldn’t that be Wednesday (6th) Keith ?

    1. Changed it, thanks.

  4. can someone post lnks here on how to get the tests other than autosport ?

    1. @spiderman
      Im not sure what you mean by that, for this test there will be a live text-commentary on sky’s f1 website. Last year there was the but Im not sure about this year. About the results, I sure most of the f1 related sites will post them after the seissions.

    2. FOM don’t have cameras at the circuit, so it won’t be televised officially. Instead it will mostly be individual TV networks interviews, vox pops and analysis. Sky will be doing a half hour show (including ads, so really only about 20 mins) at the end of each day which will mainly consist of Ted’s notebook.

  5. The W04 looks cheap and undeveloped. Something like the back-marker teams would design.

  6. Red Bulls car RB9 is a wonderfull car !
