Pre-season testing in Barcelona delayed by snow.
Snow delays pre-season testing in Barcelona
They'll end up moving to Bahrain or something next year I guess.
Seems one or two of the teams are happy with their prep so far, and veto'd a request to add an extra testing day too, the utter bastards lol
It's amusing that other teams seem surprised at their cutthroat approach.
cant seem to find a thread so I thought I’d start one.
Testing completed and Merc look like they’ve improved on everyone and the team to beat this year. I can see the title being wrapped up canny early this season.
I know they’re for safety but the halos on the cars look fucking awful
Just watched the paddock uncut and notebook programmes. It seems as if Ferrari have a bit of work to do with their engine.
Got ticket for Baku already
Chance I could be off to Abu Dhabi at the end of the season, just need to sort a few things out
Only three engines allowed this season and the Mercs engine looks bullet proof
This. Not even sure it would have saved Senna or helped Massa when he got injured either. The Indycar solution whilst still ungainly is at least slightly better.
That'll be McLaren struggling for engines by race 4
And the Honda engine seems decent enough for Torro Rosso it hasn’t broke down yet
Best looking car?
Renault imo. Yellow from a birds eye view black from the side, looks mint.
Lewis for another title
It was never anything to do with a senna or jules type crash.
The did hundreds of simulations of a massa style incident, and halo improved the outcome in the vast majority of the tests.
I’m looking forward to this season. Merc and red bull appear to have withheld doing fast laps and focused on long runs, are they hiding their quali pace??
You didn't look very hard then.
Hamilton will win the title.
The McLaren looks miles better than everything else
Averaged a second faster than anyone else in the long distance race distances, looks ominous but teams are well renowned for sandbagging in tests. Be interesting to see individual sector times during the long runs as that's usually the best indicator as they more often than not pile a fast sector in and take it easy the rest of the lap to hide the real pace
Bump cos it’s hard to search for F1 with it only having 2 characters
Who will be watching on Sunday then?
Going to stick my tin hat on and say a Vettel win.
Last year on free to air too, suicidal for the sport to have no free to air coverage at all from 2019 onwards (as it stands)
