Well, that isn't wing, it's engine cover. Not wing. Very ugly engine cover. Looks slow...

It's not ugly -- looks great. Very aggressive and I like it.

Dunno how effective is ... :tired:

Fisi is doing a Great Job :nosweat:
Red Bull's engine cover looks so strange, but if it aids improvement then good for them,

And what does it has to do with Williams's test? They were in
Barcelona, far ... far away from England. :cool:

''hmm'' It seems that the BMW's have made a bit of progress from their unbalanced car of a few weeks ago. That's good to see. :thumbsup: But they seem to have added even more wings and winglets on the car. Do they really need all that lot?

Hey, but what on earth is Fisi doing there? :blink: Surely the Force India can't be that fast, not even running on fumes. What's happening there? :cheezy:

Fernando needs 6 more tenths :nosweat:

And that Honda...ugh...not only does it look ugly as hell, but it's also the slowest car out there. Not even Ross Brawn can do anything for them unless the new aero package works.

I don't know why, but Force India is fast at this moment, and
it's not only because they make light runs. The car looks simple
and efficient -- aerodynamically speaking :)

It will be fantastic to see Fisichella having better results at FI
than the results he had last year with Renault.

I guess FI is faster than Hondas and maybe one of the Red-Bulls
-- Torro Rosso.

Lilellatho wrote:Fernando needs 6 more tenths :nosweat:

Maybe ... but Renault is slower than McLaren and Ferrari and also
Williams has its problems too. Everyone was excited that they're
back on top, but it seems they have a long way to reach top.

I though that too ... I have bet on Honda and BMW before tests
started, but it seems don't just happen overnight. Probably next year,
Honda will be in front of the field. Can't go backwards $peace

Hard to tell.. the track was cold and the times are not so impressive yet though. Hamilton's time was 0.8 seconds slower than last year's time on pole.

Vettel's latest time is 1:21.679. That kind of times are more like what we're looking for. McLaren can probably go a lot quicker though.
