Wasn't Massa's pole about 1.21.5 last year. They said 2009 would be slower as well. stunning time.

McLaren started the week with a 22.9, now a 20,8, that's already 2,1 seconds faster, let's hope they will continue like this at Jerez next week :pray:

What is more, they don't use KERS. It's the sheer speed coming from aero and Merc engine. Absolutely stunning.

Small? Q2 time in 2008 Spain was 1:20.784, nearly 2 sec off Rubens' pace.

FERRARI: Die sind eine Sekunde schneller als wir. Das ist doch gar nicht möglich", sagten Ferrari-Techniker unisono
Ferrari-technician: "They are one second faster than us. It can't be real."

RENAULT : "Als ich hier ankam war ich noch optimistisch, was unsere Chancen betrifft. Jetzt bin ich es nicht mehr"
Flavio: "When I arrived here I was still optimistic as far as our chances are concerned. Now I am not optimistic any more."

WILLIAMS : "Wenn sie die Rundenzeiten in Melbourne wiederholen können, die Button am Mittwochmorgen bei seinem Dauerlauf gezeigt hat, gewinnen Button und Barrichello den Grand Prix von Australien mit einer Runde Vorsprung"
Sam Michael: "If they can repeat these laptimes in Melbourne which were set by Button on Wednesday morning during his long stint, Button and Barrichello will win the Australian Grand Prix by one lap advantage."

Mercedes : "Das Team hatte viel mehr Zeit, das 2009er Auto zu entwickeln als alle anderen. Das zahlt ich jetzt aus"
Norbert Haug: "The team have had more time for developing the 2009's car than the others. It seems to pay off."

i think ferrari are doing quali simulation but q3 simulations and maybe brawn gp aare going underweight to attract sponsors..
remember that they need sponsors rather that good setups of the car.

Nope. Here is what Ross Brawn said:

Q. And KERS?

RB: We don't have KERS. That may be something for later in the season, but with the time we have had available, quite frankly, we have not considered KERS.

if indeed that brawn car is really quick, i wonder where did they get it right ''hmm''
their front nose was kinda similar to the mp4-20/honda2005/ferrari2005 cars.

If Honda doesn't use KERS now, then when they do get KERS, they'll be fighting for the championship!
