    @mathers – Brilliant livery, absolutely love it, but then you know that anyway!

    @mathers, @blockwall2, @RoboCAT – I think you’re right Adam. As far as I’m aware the weather should be taken from the dates the event is actually held, so there is a lot of long range forecasting to be done! haha

    So that’s where all the messages went… haha

    I have to confess I’m totally lost as to where anyone is – apart from DS.

    Should make for an awesome first race, especially given the different tyre compounds, I’m partly worried we won’t be able to keep up in commentary @sirspuddington! :P

    So I missed this last time out in Argentina when Hayden Paddon claimed an incredible maiden win, but sadly things have gone rather wrong for him this weekend out in Portugal. A small mistake led to a rather unspectacular accident, but the hot car surrounded by dry bushes didn’t mix, and sadly the Hyundai went up in flames.

    Video of the crash:

    Ott Tanak also went off in the same place and his car also caught fire, but it was only small and he was able to put it out. Spectators then pulled his car clear of the surrounding fire to avoid further damage.

    Second and third fastest on Hard tyres?! That’s very ominous from DS…

    I don’t think we’ll really be able to gauge a pecking order until the test has concluded, and even then it’ll take some evaluating with all the different tyres!

    @JamieFranklinF1 – You’re not the only one. Day 2 was supposed to be softs for me and I got the hard tyre.

    @RoboCAT, @bradley13, @diceman, @Formula-1, @bnm123, @JamieFranklinF1, @mathers, @pezlo2013, @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1, @sirspuddington, @aiera-music, @redmist, @blockwall2, @theawesomefish, @holmqvist

    Just because there was a day off, doesn’t mean we’re falling behind, it’s day three of pre-season testing! Pre-season testing – Day three

    Day four will be posted by Nic tomorrow, and then it’s all about the count down to Melbourne.

    And awesome spreadsheet Dylan! It’s not looking very good from where I am however…

    @sirspuddington – You’re not the only one, but there appears to be an article on the website: http://formulav.weebly.com/formula-v/rossi-confirmed-to-miss-2016-season-holmqvist-the-replacement

    For some reason it hasn’t been posted here yet.

    However, welcome @holmqvist! Can I get a few more details please? Engine name, tyres supplier and reserve number?

    @blockwall2 – Kevin Magnussen: Collision with Renault team mate Jolyon Palmer at the 2016 Spanish Grand Prix :P

    @JamieFranklinF1 – How very diplomatic :P

    With that delightfully coloured car unveiled (sorry @sirspuddington, but you already knew I wasn’t a fan :P haha) we just have @juan-pablo-heidfeld-1 to go! (Oh, and @mathers race livery!)

    @sirspuddington – I know! But to be fair, there’s been blue on my car since 2013 :P

    @redmist – Awesome, just thought I’d mention it! :)

    And what do you mean by this?

    I can also confirm that from now on Ocelot will change to the current blue and drop the old sky blue! :)

    @aiera-music – As expected, brilliant. If I’m honest I preferred the livery towards the back end of 2015 – which as @mathers knows all too well is a real shock as I’m not the biggest fan of white usually – but it still looks amazing.

    I have to say though, I am concerned by the amount of blue on this years grid, I’m surprised there’s any blue paint left!
