Surely the encouraging aspect for Lotus is that they have been able to complete quite a few laps: Trulli over 100 today. Virgin have barely done more than 30 or 40 on each of the days that they have tested and seem to be blighted by reliability issues.

Ferrari's long runs are just awesome. However, if they can't translate that into a quick quali lap, races culd be interesting.
No, I'm not calmer. Just more jaded.

- Established teams covered by 0.7
- Ferrari and Mclaren ahead, Ferrari more reliable
- RBR just behind them, JA is surprised they are not ahead
- Mercedes and Force India follow
- Renault has made good strides
- Likely to see one-stop races with a very long first stint
- Ferrari and Mclaren seem to have a bit of an edge on qualifying with harder tires

The rim looks like the one I have my winter tyres on. Just plain black and a die-cast look. Very ugly....the rims at the presentation looked so promising...like real rims :lol:
But F1 is not about the looks these days I guess....I´m such a nostalgic :)

That rim also looks like it has some sort of disk like last season. Are they trying to get around the ban on those by incorporating it in to the hub itself I wonder.

Yeah, typically Ferrari. They started all that wheel-cover c**p back in 2006 (Turkey it was I think) :zz:

Just as any team do. DD and Mirrors are examples of pieces shaped to make something extra...

4 days of Sun in Barcelona next week... at last... :)
