With the season starting in just over 3 weeks I thought it'd be an idea to clue people up on whats been going on over the last few weeks, if you're bothered, but haven't checked online. So, first the cars....

Really happy to see the introduction of a a few new teams, although I can't see any competing. From testing it looks like it'll be a fight between McLaren and Ferrari. I think I'll put a cheeky punt on Alonso winning the title.

 

Obviously I'm hard about the return of Schumacher, but I don't expect too many podium finishes. I think he's just there to get the car home every race. He'll win at least one race though, probably in shocking torrential rain conditions when the young guns spin out all over the place.

 

Interesting to see the varying designs on the top fin.

(ignoring the wednesday session times due to rain)

 

Don't know what to make of Button being over a second off Hamilton's pace, perhaps he didnt go out on low fuel?

Although it could be that the teams didnt go full race pace at all, so to not show what they can do to the other teams any earlier than necessary.

 

Anyone going to any of the GPs this year? I've got my tickets, flight and accomodation booked for Monza in september :D (must remember not to wear my mclaren tshirt, though...)

Caled it actually rained on some of the other days too. So combining the results isnt the best idea really, and then you have the fact that different teams spent their time testing different things.. such as

Hamilton spent the early part of the day running through an aero mapping programme, with distinctive measuring rakes fitted to the car, before evaluating brake and brake materials while also working on weight distribution. His best lap came on his final run on a fresh set of dry tyres.

aye true, but its only meant as an indication. I think the fuel load would be one of the major factors affecting the speed, and theres the assumption that most teams at least tried to see what the car could do with low-ish fuel on board. I guess we'll see what to make of these results after the first race in 3 weeks.
