    God thing is that they finally abandoned old concept of making F1 car, and began with new more aggressive one. But, bad thing is that while other are testing their cars, we are still learning ours...

    Think of it this way, we can expect to keep getting lots of improvements from our car, the others will already be close to their optimum performance with their current car. In fact, I don't think we will see our car even close to its best until after China.

    car has potential but speed is hidden, I assume we will be contenders for P1 sometime from 3rd or 4th race...

    In both cases (described in previous two posts) who knows how many point we will lost because of that to the one who can theoretically collect all!

    I'm not confident to pick where we are in the pecking order, my suspicion is we are close to the pointy end of the stick. It just stands to reason that with such a radically different and new car that it will take us much longer to start to learn how to maximize its potential.

    Exactly! But until we learn it hot to maximize it, many point will be lost. And in last 10-15 years one who collected most of the available point from fly away races before Europe, was at the end champion!

    The Ferrari doesnt look too bad at all in the exit of the chicane. I love the footage of Fernando coming in the pits, its amazing how fast these guys go. And of course while your watching this, crank the speakers up it sounds awesome!
    Anyone notice how quick he has the DRS open coming out of the last corner!!!!

    The live feed on autosport is so anti Ferrari the guy or girl is a pleb and never all week has reported anything good about our team or car!! Thats because they are all worried that we are gathering data so when we are in P1 & P2 in Australia and blow everyone away then what will the say!!

    "Rumores que me llegan via @f1talks apuntan a que el abandono de Lotus de los test pudo venir motivado por el tema de los mapas motores."

    Not looking good for Ferrari...Massa still doing aero testing, running down main straight in cruise mode as everybody else on setups
    How is that not looking good? We've already done longer runs on previous days and every team has a different program.

    We need The Horse Whisperer to come back and insult some of these senseless journalists.

    11:58 Massa pits again and once again immediately heads back out - so not giving us a great indication of what Ferrari can do on super softs.

    hey Rob, that pic of Massa you posted (post #739) would make a killer wallpaper, is it possible to get it high res?

    NO! I am not suggesting anything, I am just expressing my thoughts. We all live in free world with freedom of speech and thinking. Or am I wrong?!

    Just like yesteday, we're doing a big set-up change on the car, so don't expect to see us running soon.

    Yes they were, but a V6 with forced induction won't sound bad.
