    Will be interesting to see what DLR can do in the F138

    What is that thing that looks like a little radiator on the Marrusia? (rear left wheel)
    Ferrari was also running that on their car.

  3. what is that fiery thing coming out of the red bull’s right hand side exhaust? :-O

    • is it some kind of misfire or unburnt fuel or something mapping related? the reason i ask is flames are hardly seen these days! –> http://www.f1fanatic.co.uk/2013/02/08/2013-f1-testing-day-4-pictures/redb-vett-jere-2013-3/

        @rp It’s probably just fuel getting into the exhaust. Why and what it means? I have no idea.

        • yup..it is most likely unburnt fuel in the exhaust, the only doubt i have is how come it is happening in the pit lane at low engine loads and when there are no aggresive gear shifts? Is it possible that there are some mapping differences which are coming to light now? differences between engine dynamometer maps and the maps they use for the track? I don’t remember reading anything about redbull pulling into the pits because of a fire, so this probably looks like a temporary event! good shot though! :-) @keithcollantine, any idea as to this?

        • yes, it is most likely unburnt fuel in the exhaust…my real question is how come there is some unburnt fuel going out? are the maps still in a tuning stage? The reason i ask is because they would tuned the maps on the engine dynamometer and is this the result of a difference between what worked on the dyno and what is needed on the track? not really sure. @keithcollantine, any ideas? I am more confused escpecially since the car is in the pit lane ,meaning low engine loads and without aggressive gearshifting going on…

        Definitely unburnt fuel. I quick lift off can sometimes let some unburnt fuel out through the exhaust valves and when it hits the hot exhaust pipes it catches on fire.

    It’s amazing, even in the pictures in action on the track, the Marussia looks much bigger than the other cars, specially since there are pictures taken from very similar angles.
    Does anyone know where and if we can see the details spec of the car? I am very interested in comparing the dimensions cause “huge” is the word that comes to mind every time I see a picture of the car. I guess it’s the very simple and straight lines of the sidepods and nose that gives that impression…

    Now here’s something brewing in the Indian media about Force India’s 2nd driver.

    Any thoughts if at all it turns true? Lewis & Bernie patted the idea last season at eve of Indian GP though.

    seems Ferrari has a cooling problem – Massa had troubles the last 3 days and today the engine blew.

    Ferrari got a new colour from launch?

    People keep talking about how Nico Rosberg and Lewis Hamilton has similar helmet design, but has anyone else noticed how Esteban Gutierrez and Luiz Razia also have remarkably similar designs? It’s not a problem since they’re racing for different teams and will probably qualify ten grid places apart on a regular basis, but I just thought that it was an interesting observation.
