    Who cares if he is being followed by camera men? They’ll follow anyone for ratings, that’s their job. Who is that guy in the helmet??? Nobody knows, that’s why you can’t wear helmets into banks and service stations. The guy is just doing his job.

    @SouthAussie94 I spoke with the Williams crew today, although they have new Martini gear on, the merchandise won’t be available for a month or so they say, can’t remember seeing any Sauber at the track, but I didn’t really look sorry.

    I would love to see Martini logos on the Williams, giving it that old school look :) Not so sure how the red would go with their current colour though

    I love it! No matter how tight they get with the rules, there is always a way around!

    @geemac Is that a vanity panel to hide the nose during testing? Otherwise I can’t see the point?

    Good work on the update, but ever since the upgrade, no matter what browser or device i use, I get a response saying I can’t log in due to cookies, yet if I click log in on this page it allows me to log in. Also I think this issue was stated by someone else, I am not receiving any notifications.

    Interesting views, people have already written off Lotus, predicted Mercedes at the top and placed a rookie of the front row. I’ll reserve my guess until the Bahrain test has been run :)

    Apparently the doors having been swinging flat out at Caterham the last few weeks, the breeze is apparently blowing behind Ericsson and Kobayashi. Personally I think it would be a shame to to see Kobayashi in such a car

    It’s true Lotus want him, be he has to be released from Caterham. I can’t see that being an issue, maybe even pushed by Renault. But time is running out Davide still might get the drive.

    I don’t understand why we are going back to ‘ski’ noses. @prisoner-monkeys gave a great example in a early post regarding the fact that MSC nearly had a face full of Luizzi with what is close to current nose specs. With these new nose tips, it’s more like they’re promoting parts for “Death Race” before they’re implementing control. The monocoque is built to withstand huge impact and forces, forces much greater than a lightweight nose cone and front wing assembly could provide. So the alternative is to ramp the nose? Imagine that nose tucking under someone’s rear wheel at the first corner as the grid backs up, or in a situation of side impact. I struggle to see how this design will improve safety

    Lack of official confirmation has placed doubts in many peoples minds but Perez isn’t exactly going about staying on side with Mclaren at the moment.. Done deal I say

    There was a rumour floating around that Hulk hadn’t been paid either and will be leaving Sauber to fill Kimi’s set for the final two races??

    A former F1 turned rally driver has also been doing simulator testing …. *adds another pot to stir.

    I find it very interesting that a lot of people here are defending Mclaren saying they have only had one bad season. Let’s see, when was their last constructors championship win? 1998? Adrian Newey designed car? For a team with such huge backing and resources not to mention good drivers, this is a dismal result. Yes Lewis won them a world championship in 2008, but since Ron Dennis left in 2009 so has all the direction. There is no point is having a fast car if you don’t have a good team or reliability, so to answer the original question, yes Mclaren is already heading down the path of the being the new Williams, especially with Whitmarsh and co leading the way
