    What kind of tires is the McLaren on? Super Softs? I thought Pirelli was not bringing the Super Softs to this test. Unless those are some sort of filming/demo run tires.

    Nico Hulkenberg is Sauber now :) These are really great shots, wish I could be there too!

  5. It’s great to see the cars in action again. I have missed them!

    Is it just me or that nose one of the Sauber or “Force India” is crooked ? It looks slanted to the right.

    We need some yellow cars again.

    Why does Hulkenburg’s Force India got the Sauber livery on it?

      Winning constructor gets 1-2; Second place constructor gets 3-4 et cetera (excluding number 13 becuase F1 is apparently triskadekaphobic).

    • @nickj95gb – The drivers’ champion brings with him wherever he goes the no.1 and likewise his teammate carries the no.2 I believe, or if (as was the case in ’93) the champion retires the winning constructor gets the no.2 and the no.1 is left without a driver to use it.

        ’93 and ’94. Damon Hill surely must have been the only person to race in consecutive seasons with a number 0 on his car.

    You can see the vanity panel coming loose on the Toro Rosso.

    That Marussia engine cover.
    I wanna do lewd things to this piece of engineering art.
    I mean, it’s such a pretty part.

    @Keith-Collantine Will you also be uploading official pictures released by the teams in the coming days?

    What’s the sword shaped thing on top of the T-Bar? Is it some sort of camera (thermal perhaps?)

    • Arijit (@arijitmaniac) said on 6th February 2013, 5:08

      Its a pitot tube I believe. Like the ones found on aircraft.
      Guess the teams use these to measure the airspeed over the car.

    What’s the point of running flo-vis on the tbar? I mean unless lotus are going to come out with a radical new tbar…
