    Jerez Test 7th-10th Feb 2012 - news and pics

    From Autosport
    Formula 1's first pre-season test will kick off with 11 teams at Jerez on Tuesday, with only Marussia not running.

    The Spanish circuit has issued a running order for the opening of the winter tests, with nine news cars set to run for the first time.

    Mercedes GP is running last year's car but using its three days of running to evaluate tyres, while HRT is only running Pedro de la Rosa in its 2011 challenger on the first two days.

    The full running order is:
    Team Tuesday Wednesday Thursday Friday
    Sauber Kobayashi Perez Perez Kobayashi
    Ferrari Massa Massa Alonso Alonso
    Force India di Resta di Resta Hulkenberg Hulkenberg
    Caterham TBA TBA TBA TBA
    Mclaren Button Button Hamilton Hamilton
    Mercedes Rosberg/Schumacher Schumacher Rosberg -
    Redbull Webber Webber Vettel Vettel
    Lotus Raikkonen Raikkonen Grosjean Grosjean
    Torro Rosso Ricciardo Ricciardo Vergne Vergne
    Williams Maldonado Maldonado Senna Senna
    HRT de la Rosa de la Rosa - -

    Also, gotta add.. Someone didn't tell Mclaren EBD was Illegal

    This is way off topic, but I am shocked to see Greig with an Kimi sig. Did hell freeze over?

    Wow, so they already suspect that McLaren may be directing all the exhaust gas under the bodywork cover all the way to the diffuser?

    I followed Autosport's coverage too last year. They did a great job, always on time everyday from morning till evening when it ends. They stick around even with it rained that day.

    Actually live coverage with text or tweets is lovely. It has the same feeling like watching video coverage

    Yeah, I don't really think there are any other F1 news sites on the same level as Autosport for what they offer. It's always the first one I go to as well as here. Looking forward to the live coverage.

    like last year ? when pre season testing hinted at a competitive season and we got our rear ends handed to us ?
    i don't think we should read too much into anything before the racing starts

    Heh, its true the lap times won't say anything at all.

    We'll have to look out for the analysis from those at the track who observe certain tiny details like how stable the car is through a corner, how early the driver can enable the DRS and so on

    Not sure but I'd imagine a 9am or 10am start (CET).

    Can't wait to see the cars back out on the track again, just sad I'm not going to testing this year like last year

    What I expect from Jerez testing is mileage and finding out how the car heats up the tyres. Then in Barcelona we'll see a revised car, I suppose. Maybe even the front nose will look a bit changed. Interested to see also the new front and back wings.

    Jerez will tell them if and how everything works, but unfortunately it won't tell
    how WELL it all works against the competition, and that goes for all runners due
    to predictable sand-bagging. I'll still be interested to watch just to see how the
    cars move.
