    Really? That time was set on ultrasofts while the track was rubbered and cars set-up, while this one on mediums in the first hour of the first day. We are lready 1,5 seconds faster at the start of the day, then we were at the end of it last year.

    well hey are on medium tyres... and definitely not showing full pace...the car could go 3 seconds faster with softer tyres even with a underfired engine...so time is not bad i gues..

    I think we shouldn't compare the times that have been set as of yet, with the fastest times from last year.
    1. It is still cold.
    2. The track is green.
    3. Those are new cars and no one is running full crank yet.

    What is interesting and somewhat relevant thing is that we already have times that are faster than the fastest one set on the first day of testing last year.

    Problems for McLaren?

    We've only had a single lap for Fernando Alonso so far - the fewest by any driver - and we're hearing that there is an oil leak preventing the team from getting back on track.

    Yes, nice to see we are getting some laps under our belt. The more data the better at this stageq. McLaren have a oil problem which will take several hours due to the location of the issue

    Have to say it's looking good, we have a decent number of laps and the times look promising too.

    I can't shake the feeling that we will hear some sour grapes from Ted/Scrabs etc though ;)

    Force India and Sergio Perez have the track to themselves as we approach the end of the second hour, with the Mexican moving into third with a best time so far of 1:26.171.

    Just 0.190 seconds separate Mercedes and Ferrari at the top of the charts as Bottas replaces Vettel at the summit with a lap of 1:23.370.

    Vettel did set a 'purple' middle sector but backed off in the other two sectors.

    Vettel did set a 'purple' middle sector but backed off in the other two sectors.
    Ericsson sets his first time of the day with a 1:29.527.
    Hukenberg's run finally ends, he's now up to 17 laps for the day.

    Were we expecting faster times so far? Given the morning chill, the choice of tyres and the acclimatization process all the teams and drivers are currently locked in, it's been pretty fast so far - but not spectacularly so

    Steady timesheet improvement for Williams so far, with the retired-unretired Felipe Massa back into third with a best lap so far of 1:25.956.

    TYRE CHOICES

    It's worth noting that the latest times for Bottas were on the soft compound tyre. Most drivers electing for the mediums on these early days.

    i would expect faster times to come as predicted last year, around 3-5 seconds faster.

    Confirmation from Mercedes - and picture evidence below - that Bottas was on the soft tyres when he set his pacesetting 1:23.370 time. The Finn is now lapping in the low 1:24s having hit 35 laps for the day so far.
